MPD ‘honesty store’ closes due to dishonest buyers

The Manila Police District (MPD) closed their “honesty store” after financial loss due to dishonest customers.

According to MPD Finest Brotherhood Cooperative general manager Ester Tan, the store has lost Php20,000 during the store’s six-month operation.

During this timeframe, the store suffered from Php500 to Php1,000 monthly loss and an incident involving a thief robbing the store Php15,000 amount of earnings, reported Philstar.

The MPD cooperative, however, opted not to file a case against the alleged suspect named Liza who worked as an aide at the district personnel division. Liza was instead dismissed from her job in the MPD.

Aside from people stealing goods, Tan added that CCTV footages from the store show “people who just get money from the box as if it is their personal ATM machine.”

Others, meanwhile, paid less than the actual price or took extra change.

During the launching of the store six months ago, MPD director Chief Supt. Rolando Anduyan said that the honesty store is a test for the police officers in the MPD.

“We would like to open the eyes of the (police officers) that if they can be honest in small things they can also be trustworthy in bigger things,” Anduyan said.

The MPD honesty store is the first honesty store in any police station in the country. It was inspired by the honesty store in Batanes which was a success.

The store offered different goods such as food and beverage, among others.
