BJMP starts drug tests for jail guards

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (17 February) -- The Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) kicked off today the nationwide simultaneous random drug testing of its 7,716 officers and personnel, including those from the district, city and municipal jails.

The ongoing jail guards drug tests is in line with the directive of Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Ronaldo Puno for the conduct of random drug tests on uniformed personnel of the Department.

A total of 96 personnel of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) National Capital Region was already subjected to random drug testing at the BJMP national headquarters based on a report by BJMP Chief Director Rosendo Dial.

The BJMP field directors will also carry out similar tests on their personnel in their respective regional offices, said a DILG portal news.

For his part, DILG Undersecretary for Public Safety Marius Corpus said that the random drug tests are being carried out first among the ranks of those in government to weed out the rotten eggs in the service and to prove that the Arroyo administration is dead serious in its anti-illegal drugs campaign.

He said that an independent company has been hired to test at random the BJMP personnel in safety critical roles, which include wardens and wardresses, mess officers and food service officers. (DILG/PIA) [top]
