Baybay News – Bureau of Jail Management and Penology strengthens community relations in Baybay City

Baybay News –– The Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) here visited the Franciscan College of Immaculate Conception (FCIC) in Baybay City to confer with freshmen and sophomore Criminology Department students. Baybay City BJMP Chief Jail Inspector Moises Suralta together with city jail officers conducted the community relations action in the school to impress upon the future law enforcers in this city the need to adopt personal discipline at the early stages of their study.

Jail Inspector Suralta, himself a product of humble beginnings, stressed that criminology students should take their studies seriously in order to learn by heart the rudiments of their chosen careers. “Being able to go to school by itself is a great opportunity that should not be laid to waste”, counseled Suralta to the students who welcomed them at the school together with the school’s Criminology Department Head Franco Bandibas.

Meanwhile, Jail Officer Jeun Retana Cantoria told the Visayan Business Post News Team that BJMP–Baybay is presently promoting jail management services to students as a noble future profession. “It is our obligation to keep the people updated about the accomplishments, programs and projects of the BJMP in the city of Baybay because proper jail management is one of the five (5) pillars of the country’s Criminal Justice System”, Cantoria explained.

Community Relations Service (CRS) is one of the programs of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), an intervention project that promotes community development through collaborative partnership with stakeholders and the civil society. This year’s theme is “Bawat Isa’y Mahalaga sa Maayos na Pamamahalang Piitan at Pagtahak sa Tuwid na Daan”.
