Manila Traffic Enforcer to use body cams to record enforcers-motorists encounter.

Manila Mayor “Erap” Estrada is equipping traffic enforcer to wear body camera while on duty.

The Philippine Government under Duterte’s administration has primary objective during his campaign that is to fulfill the promise of eliminating corrupt officials. In support with this advocacy, Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada is making way to cut down corruption and misbehavior among MTPB (Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau) enforcers.  Mayor Erap believed that one of the effective ways is to wear a body camera. So, starting this year the MTPB is requiring every traffic enforcer to wear body camera while on duty. It is also an answer to the complaints the city receiving from our motorists that there were officers do extorting activities. Unknown to other cities, Mayor Erap terminated the job contracts of 690 members of the MTPB after City Hall was swamped with complaints. Vacant slots were already replaced by the first batch of 92 new trainees that are said to be more disciplined, competent and incorruptible. This idea is also fully supported by MTPB chief Dennis Alcoreza explaining that it will also help crime investigation to get evidence of what happens during the actual apprehension rather than rumor.  (PNA, 01/02/2016)
