If you frequent the streets of Metro Manila, you’ve probably noticed by now that the authorities have become more present in terms of upholding the traffic laws of the land. Besides the local traffic enforcement units of LGUs, elements from the Land Transportation Office (LTO) and Inter-Agency Council for Traffic or I-ACT (which are comprised of personnel from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board [LTFRB], Metropolitan Manila Development Authority [MMDA] and the Philippine Coast Guard), have also been a frequent sight on the streets these days. Another group we see is the Philippine National Police – Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG).
Sadly, while these agencies are tasked with keeping our roads safe and making sure that every driver or motorcycle rider follows traffic laws, they are, admittedly, a little short-staffed when it comes to personnel. They’re addressing that now by opening their doors to volunteers.
The PNP-HPG wants you to be part of their volunteer force multipliers. The best part is that this invitation is extended to ALL motorcycle riders, whether you ride a big bike or a small bike. If you’re up to be a volunteer PNP-HPG force multiplier, all you need to is to register and be a member of the Full Spectrum Riders Association of the Philippines (FSRAP) at the provincial/ or regional HPG offices.
For NCR aspirants, just visit their RHPU-NCR inside Camp Crame, in Quezon City. Also, bring the following documents: duly accomplished application form, barangay clearance, police clearance, an endorsement from the regional HPG chief or provincial HPG chief, driver’s license, motorcycle’s OR/CR or other proof of motorcycle ownership.
Be reminded that this recruitment is for voluntary members of the force multiplier group only. Under no circumstances will a force multiplier volunteer do actual police work, like issue a ticket or flag down motorists for possible traffic violations.
