  • Improper use of vehicle plates;
  • Non-compliance to Tamang Bihis policy;
  • Non-wearing of helmets while riding motorcycle;
  • Improver use of government vehicle;
  • Violation of Traffic Rules; and
  • Non-observance of discipline while on duty

According to the memo, the PNP should be the first to uphold the law and promote the culture of professionalism as stated in CODE-P. It also stressed that if the concerns are not properly addressed the PNP “will be mocked in the public and in the media due to the irresponsibility of the very few PNP personnel.”

Police Chief Superintendent, Danilo Santos Constantino, warned that “immediate heads of offices will be held liable for the violation of their personnel on the above-stated polices if no action is taken to the misdemeanors of their personnel.”
