Police banned from working at nightclubs

MUNICIPAL governor Kep Chuktema had banned police and military police in the capital from working as security guards at nightclubs and beer gardens, officials said yesterday. National military police spokesman Kheng Tito said officers had no right to work as security guards and encouraged them to work extra hours instead. “If [police] use their position and uniform to work for a nightclub or beer garden, it is illegal and they will be punished,” he said, adding that some officers worked as guards for private businesses to earn additional money for their families.
