50 new police recruits join CIDG

The Criminal Investigation Detection Group (CIDG) has 50 new police recruits who took their oath on Tuesday during a ceremony held at the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters in Camp Crame, said CIDG director Chief Supt. Amador Corpuz.

The CIDG said out of 110 applicants, only 50 passed the rigid screening procedure that consists of physical fitness test, neuro-psychiatric exam, IQ test and complete background investigation. Aside from these, applicants must have a four-year baccalaureate degree and pass the eligibility exams as minimum requirements.

Corpuz said this marks a golden opportunity for the new recruits as the CIDG recruitment and screening process is strict.

“This is true for new recruits and police personnel who are interested to be a member of the Team CIDG, the PNP’s premier investigative unit,” he said.

He urged the new recruits to always pray and not resign as they become a valuable part of the Team CIDG.

Corpuz also noted the importance of families, relatives and friends of police recruits, who were present during the oath-taking ceremony. He said families, especially the children, serve as their inspiration as they go through the recruitment training.

Likewise, Corpuz urged the new CIDG members to practice teamwork.

“Those who are physically and intellectually strong, help your classmates who are weak and those who feel weak may ask help from their fellow classmates. With this, all of them can graduate the PSBRC (Public Safety Basic Recruit Course) and become a full member of the investigation,” he said.#
