The Dagupan City government will give body cameras to the Dagupan City Police Station and the Public Order and Safety Office (POSO).
Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez said the body cameras will prevent irregularities in the police and the POSO’s operations.
The Pangasinan politiko said POSO personnel will be able to use the body cameras during their traffic operations.
The body cameras will be available by the second quarter of 2018.
There have been many instances of traffic altercations going viral because of irregularities involving traffic enforcers.
Critics have also said police have become trigger-happy especially during anti-drug operations in the Duterte administration’s war on drugs.
