Certis CISCO has identified the man who was caught on camera disposing parking fines from several vehicles into a dumpster as one of their employees. The security organisation revealed that the parking warden was simply disposing of defective parking tickets.
A video catching the man in the act was posted online on Facebook group, Singapore Taxi Driver, by netizen Ivy Long last week. After the warden nonchalantly walks away from the scene, the person videotaping him approaches the dumpster and discovers multiple parking fine slips crumpled up within the bin.
Certis CISCO has since said:
“We have investigated the incident involving our Enforcement Officer who was observed by a member of public to have thrown summons into a rubbish bin along Veerasamy Road on 23 Nov at 11.30am.
“According to our findings, our Enforcement Officer had discarded the Notices of Parking Offences (NOPO) that had print quality problems that rendered them ineffective.
“They carry only vehicle numbers and no other personal details.
“Following our investigations, our officer has since been counselled and reminded to adhere to Standard Operating Procedure to discard all NOPOs by shredding them in the office.”
