Function of the Regional Office

Taking heed of the government’s call towards the decentralization and devolution of powers and authority from the national to the local level with the end in view of   improving its service delivery to the people, Napolcom established 17 Regional Offices which are strategically located in the different regional divisions of the country.

These offices implement the policies and programs of Napolcom in their respective regions. They, likewise, perform the functions of investigation and adjudication of death and permanent and temporary disability benefit claims, and scholarship grants, subject to standards set by the Commission.

They, through  the office of legal counsels, act as legal consultants of the PLEBs and provide, whenever  necessary, legal services, assistance and advice to the PLEBs in hearing and deciding cases against officers and members of the PNP, especially those involving difficult questions of the law.
