Sun.Star Davao - - FRONT PAGE -

The Bu­reau of Jail Man­age­ment and Penol­ogy Re­gion 11 is plan­ning to have a cash­less sys­tem in the fa­cil­ity of Davao City Fe­male Jail.

“Ang phys­i­cal cur­rency sa jail iyaha gyud elim­i­nate para ma curb ang drug pur­chase og mar- ket sa su­lod sa fe­male jail fa­cil­ity (The phys­i­cal cur­rency will be elim­i­nated to curb the drug pur­chase and mar­ket in­side the fe­male jail fa­cil­ity),” Jail Of­fi­cer 1 Har­vey Bryan Mal­ne­gro, com­mu­nity re­la­tions of­fi­cer of BJMP 11, said yes­ter­day.

He added that if cash trans­ac­tions will be elim­i­nated, con­tra­band pur­chases and mar­ket will have dif­fculty in pen­e­trat­ing the fa­cil­ity.

The planned cash­less sys­tem will have a soft­ware to reg­is­ter and mon­i­tor fe­male in­mate’s pur­chase to their com­mis­sary through card and scanned bio­met­ric of in­mate’s thumbprint.

The ini­tial pay­ment of the project will be taken from the funds that will be raised from their up­com­ing event Off-Road Duathlon headed by Jail Se­nior In­spec­tor Rovie Ann Al­can­tara on Oc­to­ber 29 in line with the Na­tional Cor­rec­tional Con­scious­ness Week (NACOCOW).

For reg­is­tra­tion, in­ter­ested par­tic­i­pants may visit BMJPRO-11 in­side Davao City Jail or check out the BJMP Multi-Sports-X1 Face­book page.
