By Cyrill Quilo

ANOTHER satellite office for police clearance that will process and issue police clearance required for local employment, government transactions and other license and permits has been opened in Laguna .

The Philippine National Police launched the National Police Clearance System at Citymall in Bgy. Bucal, Calamba City, Laguna.

Yesterday in a press briefing in Camp Crame , PNP chief Gen. Benjamin Acorda Jr. said the National Police Clearance System operates in a fully digital format that has eliminated some tedious physical procedures in the old manual system.

“As with the National Police Clearance System, the PNP has also fully operationalized the automation of procedures for issuance of License to Own and Possess Firearms and firearms registration thru the Civil Security Group and further devolved to the Police Regional Offices,” Acorda said.

In observance of June as the national ICT month, Acorda said the PNP joins the Philippine ICT community in promoting awareness and development of ICT not only to serve the requirements of their own agency but on a larger scale, to support the vision and desire of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. to fully digitalize all transactions with government offices and private business applications by as much as 95 percent.

Anchored on the theme “Connecting Communities, Enriching Lives, Forging a Digital Future for the Philippines,” the kick-off ceremony of the observance of National ICT Month was highlighted by the formal launching of the eGov PH Super App.
