MANILA, Philippines — Police officers in the Philippines have got to stop picking their noses!! And no more taking selfies!
Which also means no selfies while picking their noses.
According to philstar.com, the Philipinne National Police have issued a memo reminding officers to not engage in negative behaviors while they are supposed to be serving and protecting. “Playing online games, taking selfies/groupies, chewing gum, unseemly posture in public such as standing with one leg, scratching part of the body and nose picking,” the memo signed by Chief Superintendent Rolando Nana says.
And that’s not all. While on patrol, they can’t hang out in theaters, restaurants, or other recreational places. They can’t sleep on the job, they can’t read newspapers, and they aren’t supposed to send unnecessary text messages.
It’s like having company the whole time you’re on duty and having to be on your best behavior.
According to the Philippine Star, the new directives are in response to social media photos officers have posted recently, showing themselves on duty in the city.
