Cops not interested in LTO deputation
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

A ranking official of the regional Land Transportation Office in Central Visayas said that some Philippine National Police officers appear to be not interested in being deputized by the LTO to enforce the country’s traffic laws, rules and regulations.

            Vicente Gador Jr., OIC Toledo (Cebu) District Office chief and concurrent legal officer of LTO-7, made the disclosure at a forum held in Dumaguete City over the weekend at which the city’s traffic perennial traffic problem was being addressed.

            When asked regarding the status of PNP deputation in Dumaguete City and the province of Negros Oriental, Gador admitted that the LTO is experiencing difficulty in convincing policemen in the province to undergo training for deputation.
