Jail officers in the region are urged to remain zealous in their commitment to ensure an effective jail service and in implementing the inmate transformation program.
Bureau of Jail and Management Penology OIC Diony Mamaril made the call during the 21st anniversary program of BJMP-CAR held at Teachers’ Camp last week.
Mamaril commended BJMP-CAR for being one of the top performing regional offices in the country and J/SSupt. Julian Mangomoc Jr., who was given the Best Regional Director of the Year award for exemplifying the region’s unwavering effort and initiative in pushing for better jail service.
He encouraged the BJMP-CAR to continue with the same passion that drives them in doing jail service. “Huwag kayong magsawang magpursigi at magsulong ng mga magagandang programa,” Mamaril said.
He also urged them to maintain the desire to transform the lives of inmates by ensuring “after care” programs and engaging the community and other private partners through various community programs and service.
The BJMP’s medium term development plan is pushing for an increase in budget for the procurement of additional short and long firearms and other equipment such as metal detectors and computers and to fund facility improvement.
Meantime, the bureau will launch by October the Top 10 Best Jail Officers Award to recognize exemplary effort of the jail officers in the country who will serve as role models. This will be opened to all BJMP regional office nominees.
