Police clearance is a government certificate that certifies the holder is free of any criminal records. This is one of the documents required by a government agency or an employer to ensure that the applicant does not have a criminal record.

It serves a similar purpose as the NBI Clearance or National Bureau of Investigation Clearance. The difference is that the PNP Clearance can only guarantee no criminal records from a specific area, whereas the NBI Clearance guarantees no criminal records throughout the Philippines.

When applying for a PNP clearance, the following general requirements must be met:

  • Personal appearance
  • Police clearance application form
  • Community tax certificate (cedula) and/or Barangay clearance
  • Police clearance fee
  • 2×2 ID picture (not applicable to all areas)
  • Birth certificate/Baptismal or any government-issued valid ID Other possible requirements (not applicable to all areas)

Meanwhile, a man applying for PNP clearance was arrested at the Tagbilaran City Police Station after discovering he has an arrest warrant.
