MANILA, Philippines — Pasig City Hall will file complaints against six members of Traffic and Parking Management Office (TPMO) for extortion as it implements program to “professionalize” its traffic enforcers, Mayor Vico Sotto said.

“Sa kabilang dako, sa mga mananatiling pasaway — lalong lalo na sa mga nangongotong — #goodbye. Ngayon pa lang ay may 6 enforcers na tayong kakasuhan ng admin complaint,” Sotto wrote on his Instagram post on Tuesday night.


Sotto also bared that Pasig City Police Station had arrested two other enforcers who had been accused of extortion.


Sotto said the city would initiate a “Continuing Professional Development Program” to train traffic enforcers on traffic rules and regulations.

He added that traffic enforcers who would show a good performance might be regularized.

“Ang mga magiging maganda ang performance sa susunod ng mga buwan ay maaaring maging permanent sa susunod na taon (karamihan sa kanila ay contractual at napaka baba ng suweldo),” Sotto said.
