Meanwhile, BJMP Spokesperson Jail Senior Inspector Xavier A. Solda, acting as project head of the online campaign, encourages the Netizens to support the project by simply liking and following the BJMP Official Facebook Fan Page as well as the agency’s Official Twitter Page, @bjmp_official.

They are requesting to share the digital contents of the campaign to their friends and relatives and encourage them to submit applications.

He also encourages the public to visit the BJMP website at www.bjmp.gov.ph for more information regarding the recruitment campaign of the bureau.

“We wanted the public to understand the job functions of BJMP officers that we are not limited only to safekeeping of inmates but we are also teachers, psychologists, social workers, doctors, lawyers, nurses, counselors and criminologists to them,” said Solda.

“The diverse educational backgrounds of our personnel became one of the strengths we are enjoying that eases our work in rehabilitating those who were put behind bars and now under our care,” Solda added.

The BJMP is a line agency under the Department of the Interior and Local Government exercising supervision of inmates undergoing trial in all district, city and municipal jails nationwide.

Sentenced prisoners are not under the BJMP but of the Bureau of Corrections who supervises New Bilibid Prisons, Correctional Institute for Women and the penal colonies across the country.
