Security Guards Who Dressed For Halloween Fined A Ridiculous Amount Instead Of The Mall


During Halloween, or any other season for that matter, establishments start their events and marketing strategies in attempt to get more customers to go to their malls and businesses.

A mall in Quezon City seem to have made a mistake with their marketing strategy last Halloween. To join and spread the Halloween vibe, the mall had their security guards dress up in costumes. This year, they chose to let their guards dress up as London Guards, complete with the red tunics and bearskins.

Not a smart decision


As a result, the Philippine National Police - Supervisory Office for Security and Investigation Agencies (SOSIA) called out the mall for letting the guards wear costumes instead of uniforms.


According to the PNP-SOSIA Superintendent Jaime Santos, it is a protocol that security guards always wear their prescribed uniforms so that people can distinguish them if ever there is an emergency.

Fined


In a news report by News TV, it was said that the guards were being asked to pay a fine of 400,000 pesos for their violation.


Further through the report, it was explained that the costumes were not the sole reason of the 400k fine. A combination of fines including expired duty detail order and also the lack of license to exercise security profession.

This means this will not be the case for all, but for those with accumulated fines only.

Revolt


However, the netizens are not so happy about the news. Some of them are saying that the fine should be shouldered by the mall and not the security guards themselves. After all, these guards will not decide to not be in uniform by themselves. An authority figure ordered them to and they just followed.

And besides, as one commenter said, the security agency handling these guards surely did not ask them to wear costumes. So it will really just go down to the mall.
