TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The Public Order and Safety Office’s (POSO) staff and enforcers attended a one-day seminar on moral transformation on November 26, 2021 at Laoagan Inn.
The activity, according to POSO Administrative Officer Merriam Buslig, was aimed to help staff and enforcers enhance their morale so they can execute their jobs more efficiently as city employees, as the moral transformation session gives people a sense of relaxation, especially when they are dealing with personal issues at home that could impair their performance at work.
Buslig emphasized the dangers and difficulties that come with the job of enforcing the city’s traffic rules, particularly when confronted with unpleasant motorists during apprehension.
However, this scenario does not stop law enforcement officers from working harder to ensure that traffic violators face the consequences of their actions.
In his message to the group, Rev. Fr. Roman A. Macaiba Jr., Assistant Parish Priest of Saint Joseph Cathedral, said hatred, envy, rage, resentment, and pursuing revenge are the true illnesses of the heart, which prevent people from making the correct choices and decisions, whether at a job, in dealing with others, or in matters of family and community.
Fr. Macaiba, who understands the challenging job of traffic enforcers, provided some tips on how to keep them motivated even when things don’t go as planned.
