Also under the decree, traffic cops working in the waterway traffic police department and vehicle registration agency sectors will get a monthly pension of VND1.5 million ($75) each.
In the mean time, each mobile police officer and each police on social order who directly participates in enforcing traffic rules are subject to a monthly benefit of VND1.5 million ($75) and VND2 million ($100), respectively, the decree said.
Cops from other sectors such as the Police Department of Criminal Investigation in Social Order, or the Drug Crime Investigation Police Department, are offered an allowance of VND100,000 each per night shift to patrol streets.
Meanwhile, traffic spectators will receive a monthly allowance of VND2 million ($100) each.
In March, Nguyen Ba Thanh, secretary of the provincial Communist Party Committee, pledged a zero tolerance policy against traffic policemen accepting bribes, in a bid to ratchet up social security and to maintain the city as a worthy destination for tourists.
“If they are caught taking bribes, no matter how small the amount, they will be fired immediately without any delay,” Thanh emphasized.
At that time, the city’s leader confirmed that they will work out policies and measures to both reward and punish policemen by the end of this year.
