The Bureau of Jail Management and Penology is an attached agency of the Department of the Interior and Local Government tasked with directing, supervising, and controlling the administration and operation of all district, city, and municipal jails in the Philippines, with the dual goals of inmate safety and development.

Brief Information About Bureau of Jail Management and Penology

The BJMP, as one of the five pillars of the Criminal Justice System, was established to address the growing concern about jail administration and penology issues.

Its primary clientele is detainees accused before a court who are temporarily held in such cells while undergoing investigation or awaiting final judgment, as well as those serving sentences of three years or less imposed by the court.

The Jail Bureau is mandated by R.A. No. 6975 to take operational and administrative supervision of all cities, districts, and municipal jails.

The Bureau’s rehabilitation program is divided into four primary areas: livelihood projects, educational and vocational training, recreation and sports, and religious and spiritual activities.

These were regularly adopted in order to eradicate criminals’ criminal patterns and reform them into law-abiding and productive citizens. Although the Jail Bureau’s office is confined within the jail to protect PDL, the Bureau has the inherent function of informing the public about jail operations and other things impacting the Philippines’ corrections pillar.

In addition, as a new and growing Bureau, BJMP aspires to keep the public informed about jail management and penology.
