The Courts, through its court administrator, will send the various subpoenas to particular PNP units in the PNP identified website or via e-mail. The assigned court personnel shall enter the details regarding a subpoena to be issued to police offices in the Data Base of the PNP using the computer-generated form known as e-Subpoena Form, which was prepared for the purpose.
