BJMP staff urged: Maintain discipline

The Bureau of Jail Management and Penology has recently reminded all personnel to maintain discipline and to always protect the institution, especially from illegal drugs.

BJMP Chief Jail director Allan Iral urged all personnel to continue ensuring a safe and healthy workplace, free from the use of dangerous drugs in all offices and jail facilities.

“Protect our institutions and if we can’t, we should not be the reason for its destruction. This is the least that we can do for the Bureau,” Iral said.

The BJMP chief reiterated the order of Secretary of the Interior and Local Government Benjamin Abalos Jr. on the possible illegal drug entries in some jail facilities.

“The order of Secretary Benjamin Abalos Jr. is clear: Drugs are prohibited in the BJMP. During our anniversary celebration, he warned all wardens whose facility will be found to have illegal drugs. Let’s take it seriously,” Iral said.

He stressed that as an agency responsible for the welfare and development of the incarcerated sector, it is imperative that its personnel are well-disciplined, and more importantly, right with the law.

The BJMP chief also reminded everyone to do their job well and not to allow themselves to be the reason for the erosion of the institution.

“The corrupt and abusive have no place in our ranks. Because in every move we make, whether it’s personal or work-related, we carry the name of BJMP — whether it’s honor or shame,” Iral said.

“And for our colleagues in the profession who have gone astray, please bear in mind that we remain firm and uncompromising when it comes to our internal cleansing program. There’s no room for errant jail officers in the BJMP,” he added.
