The Land Transportation Office is set to deputize 54 police personnel from the Bacolod City Police Office, Supt. Victorino Romanillos Jr., deputy city director for administration of BCPO, said yesterday.
Romanillos said Senior Supt. Francisco Ebreo, BCPO officer-in-charge, wanted the traffic investigators and other personnel on the ground to be deputized to nab erring drivers and to helpimprove the traffic condition of Bacolod.
A deputation seminar initiated by LTO-6 regional director Roland Ramos, and attended by personnel from police stations, the Traffic Management Unit, Bacolod City Mobile Patrol Group, chiefs of police, and traffic investigators, was held yesterday at the rooftop of new BCPO building at their headquarters at Magsaysay Avenue in Bacolod.
Romanillos said the personnel will be given deputations after the seminar that was aimed to enhance and equip them with new knowledge on the different traffic laws and regulations.
Traffic incidents are high based on their Incident Report Record. Almost every day, there is always a traffic incident in Bacolod, Romanillos said.
He said that after the personnel are trained, deputized, and given Temporary Operator’s Permit, they may already be deployed on the roads.*SGG
