So I was chatting with a friend of mine who’s working at the Provincial Government of Bukidnon one day. She then told me something that I found rather amusing. Apparently, a provincial board member has proposed that business establishments such as banks, Internet cafes, restaurants, hotels, schools and other shops install close circuit television cameras or CCTV cameras and that this should be required. I guess Bukidnon board member Jay Albarece, the proponent of such measure, realized that with the number of crimes in Bukidnon, it’s but vital that everyone does his or her share in fighting the baddies.
This made me think, really. While I applaud Board Member Albarece’s proposal (I mean, who in the world does not like any proposal that could help maintain peace and order, right?), it also got me thinking — would the measure include the Capitol as well? Shouldn’t CCTV cameras be installed at the Provincial Government of Bukidnon, too? Or are we just singling out the businessmen here? No, I’m not just talking about keeping the peace and order within the premises of the Capitol.
I’m talking about monitoring the actions of the Capitol employees.
I’m talking about CCTV cameras that could also monitor:
– Capitol employees who SMOKE right inside the office (I deliberately wrote this first because SERIOUSLY this has been happening, is still happening and may continue to happen if nobody puts his or her foot down and really and I mean REALLY reprimand these smokers who are oblivious of others!)
– employees who leave their place of work to do personal errands and will just go back (oftentimes hours later!) to punch their bundy cards in
– regular or casual employees who ask job order employees or interns/OJTs to punch their bundy cards in their behalf
– employees who sleep during office hours
– employees who barely do anything except go on Facebook, Twitter, gossip sites and other websites that barely have anything to do with work
and all the other horror stories you and I have all heard about and perhaps even personally witnessed as well.
Can someone ask board member Albarece this please?
Sure, these may not equate to something as “serious” as hold-ups/theft but aren’t these “crimes” against taxpayers as well?
Just thinking out loud.
WHAT ABOUT YOU? WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THIS ISSUE?
