Lucena city district jail, commended for zero escape detainees

by Carlo P. Gonzaga

LUCENA CITY, Quezon, January 7 (PIA) -- For maintaining the record of no escaped prisoners, the city government lauded the management of the city district jail, which according to city administrator Ramon Talaga Jr. is an indication of good management and respect to inmates.

“If there is anyone released from this jail, it’s because the detainee paid the necessary bail or released on recognizance, case dismissal or transferred to another institution,” Jail Inspector Alfredo Mariano, city warden for the male dorm said.

At present, according to Mariano, there are 27 inmates at the male dorm. In 2010, 19 detainees were released while 16 were discharged last year. Common cases on record include illegal drugs, murder, rape, violation against women and children and robbery and theft.

On the other hand, Jail Inspector Shiela Oliquino, city wardress for female dorm said there are 70 female inmates in her assignment with cases ranging from crime against person and property to illegal drugs.

The two jail inspectors said there are rehabilitation programs the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) and some non-government organizations are advocating. These are community development, moral values, spiritual guidance, counseling, the Department of Education’s (DepEd) alternative learning system (ALS), sports and recreational activities, livelihood and income generating services and visitation priveleges.
