Police to crackdown on buses showing violent, sexual films

The National Capital Region Police Office has advised bus companies and their staff to show only wholesome films onboard provincial buses so as not to scandalize parents and their children traveling this Holy Week.

It is common practice for bus staff to play local or foreign movies to keep passengers from getting bored during long trips.

It has been observed, however, that some movies played during these trips are not for general patronage.

NCRPO director Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar raised this issue amid complaints that movies with extreme violence and sexual content were sometimes screened on provincial buses.

“We urge them (bus staff) to pick films that are child-friendly. They should be responsible enough with what they show passengers, especially child passengers,” Eleazar said.

To ensure the compliance of bus companies, Eleazar has ordered police personnel to monitor buses in terminals in Metro Manila and remind drivers and conductors about NCRPO’s guidelines on decency.

Eleazar also urged passengers to report the showing of inappropriate films to personnel manning police assistance desks.

He said passengers could report erring bus drivers and conductors through the NCRPO Facebook and Twitter accounts or via 0999-901-8181 and 0915-888-8181.
