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.

Alam nating lahat kung gaano ka notorious ang mga Pasig TPMO o "Blue Boys". Aminin natin na marami pa rin sa kanila ang tiwali o kulang sa kasanayan. Pagkatapos ng Flag-Raising Ceremony, kinausap ko ulit. Maraming nang nagbabago at magbabago pa sa TPMO. Ngayong Miyerkules, sisimulan na natin ang CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM para sa mga Traffic Enforcer… Mula sa tamang pakikipag-usap sa mga motorista hanggang sa kaalaman ukol sa traffic rules & regulations, kasama sa training na ito. 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). 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. May 2 ding naaresto ng ating PNP.

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.
