The Department of Interior and Local Governments on Tuesday ordered the Philippine National Police to assist the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology in conducting jail inspections across the country.

In a memorandum, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año directed PNP and BJMP personnel to adhere to the new guidelines “to rationalize and ensure the sound and efficient conduct of joint inspections of all jails under the management and supervision of the DILG-BJMP.”

The new guidelines require the submission to the Office of the DILG Secretary a request to inspect prior to the conduct of the joint inspection which will be subject to the approval of the Secretary or a duly authorized representative.

The request must indicate the objectives of the inspection, the manner of the conduct, and the list of personnel joining the inspection.

The PNP-BJMP inspection teams are also ordered to coordinate with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency  to ensure proper handling in case of recovery of illegal drugs and paraphernalia.

“We have been supporting the BJMP and local government units for the security survey of all provincial and municipal jail facilities nationwide,” PNP chief Gen. Oscar Albayalde said in a statement.

Both the PNP and BJMP are attached agencies of the DILG.
