Sintra personnel among first to wear mandatory ID badges

Cancún, Q.R. — Given the large number of complaints by the public against inspectors of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport (Sintra), the state says that as of now, all public personnel must wear an identification badge.

Rafael del Pozo Dergal, head of the Secretariat of the State Comptroller, reported that the identification will display the worker’s photograph, name, dependence where he collaborates and a QR code in which it can be validated from the Tak application.

He says that it is mandatory that all public servants wear their identification badge while on duty and most importantly, do not overstep with what is authorized.

He announced the first two dependencies of the State Government that has its inspectors registered are those of the Secretariat of Infrastructure and Transport (Sintra) and the Commission of Protection Against Sanitary Risks.

The move for Sintra workers comes after years of public complaints regarding corruption against motorists.

He said that gradually, the rest of the State Government agencies will be added to the system.

Citizens can verify the validity of the identification badges in the Tak Pool application, which is available for any smartphone with Android and IOS operating system or by calling their 24/7 help line at 01 800 84 977 84.
