A female police officer in her 30s at the Hyogo Prefectural Police Headquarters was disciplined by her supervisor for repeatedly doing side jobs, such as creating stickers to be put on cars and selling them on SNS. In total, they earned about 4.130 million yen over four years.
The person who was punished was a female chief constable in her 30s who belonged to the Traffic Department of the Hyogo Prefectural Police Headquarters.
According to the police, in the four years until April, the chief constable created stickers to put on cars with messages such as "There is a dog in the car" and sold them on SNS.
It was sold more than 4 times, and a total of about 4.300 million yen was earned.
In addition, he signed contracts with 130 companies and was also active as a monitor to promote performance on SNS in exchange for providing children's products for free or at discounted prices.
Due to a series of anonymous reports from last year to this year, the Hyogo Prefectural Police Headquarters last month reprimanded the chief constable for violating the Local Public Service Law, which restricts side jobs for public servants.
The chief constable told the interviewer, "My hobby is drawing, and I wanted many people to see my paintings, and I thought it would not be a side job because I was not making a profit."
