BJMP Caraga recognizes promoted personnel

By Jennifer P. Gaitano

BUTUAN CITY -- In time for the 27th Anniversary of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) Caraga, several personnel were recognized for their significant contributions to the accomplishments of the agency and their dedication in the performance of their tasks and functions.

Jail Senior Superintendent (JSSupt) Bernie Ruiz was one of the recipients of the Best Senior Jail Officer Rank Award. He expressed his gratitude to his colleagues in the BJMP Caraga as well as to partner stakeholders from various sectors, who continuously support the agency and provide assistance to its operations.

The Agusan del Norte Jail Administrator was also recognized as Best Provincial Jail Administrator’s Office; Surigao del Norte District Jail as Best District Jail; and Surigao City Jail as Best City Jail.

Also, partners from the different local government units and national/regional line government agencies also received plaques of recognition from BJMP for continuously providing programs and services intended for the persons deprived of liberty (PDLs) in the city/municipal/provincial jails in the region.

“We thank our partners for giving us their continued support as we perform our duties and achieve our common goals. We will continue to serve our constituents and ensure the welfare of our PDLs in the different jails,” said Jail Chief Superintendent (JCSupt) Jolly Taguiam Jr., BJMP Caraga regional director.

BJMP Caraga's chief also highlighted the bravery of the on-duty personnel during the Lianga District Jail siege, which preempted the PDLs' escape. The three personnel were awarded the ‘Medlaya ng Kabayanihan’ and eventually promoted. 

Meanwhile, Jail Director Allan Sullano Iral urged all the BJMP employees to work professionally and set aside their personal interest at work.

“Let us be process-oriented as much as we are goal-oriented. These three things – duty before self, service quality, and doing things right are actually what we need to attain a strong management in the jails that will bring about a safer community, which is our theme for the 31st Anniversary of BJMP and 27th Anniversary here in BJMP Caraga. It starts with ourselves and with the right perspective,” said Dir. Iral. (JPG/PIA-Caraga)
