BJMP inaugurates new Gapan City Jail detention facility

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga, Jan 23 (PIA) -- Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) Regional Office 3 recently inaugurated the newest detention facility of Gapan City Jail in Nueva Ecija.

BJMP regional information officer Nigel Arellano said, “the building provides a more conducive

atmosphere to around 240 inmates as it has two bigger jail cells.”

Arellano disclosed that, “Gapan’s erstwhile edifice had two small jail cells- a condition considered inhumane as different diseases can easily spread among prisoners due to limited space.”

The transfer was made possible after a memorandum of agreement was signed between BJMP chief Rosendo Dial and Gapan mayor Christian Tinio for the utilization of the city government’s unoccupied building which is just adjacent to the old detention facility.

BJMP allotted P1.9 million for the repair of the structure and the conversion of the city jail’s former prison cells into offices and personnel quarters. (WLB/CLJD-PIA 3)
