BJMP12 History

     The Bureau of Jail Management and Penelogy was created through the enactment of RA 6975 otherwise known as the Department of the Interrior of Local Goverment Act of 1990.

 On July 1991, fifteen (15) personnel fron the defunt PC/INP in Region 12 volunteered to transfer to the newly created Jail Bureau and became the pioneer of BJMP12.  Among the first jails being catered were jails of General Santos City, Cotabato City, Midsayap, kidapawan, Marbel, Tacurong, Koronadal, Bagumbayan, Tangtangan, Cabakan and Makilala.  Most of these jails were jointly manned by BJMP and PNP elements while some were still manned by the PNP though inmates' subsitence allowance were provided by the Jail Bureau.

 

In the month of August of the same year, BJMP12 formally started its operation and established its regional office in the PNP Camp Dumlao at Isulan, Sultan Kudarat with SINSP ALFREDO MAGUATE SR being designated as the OIC/Assistant Rgional Director (ARD).  A year later, the office was transferred at BF Lodge, Tacurong , Sultan Kudarat.  As the regional bureau grows, greater office space requirement was needed, so the regional office was again transferred to Halina Building, Pendatun Street, General Santos City from 1993 to 1999.  During the stint of SSUPT REYNALDO B. BERDIN as the Regionnal Director, the regional was relocated to General Santos City Jail compound from 1999 to 2002.  From the city jail compound, BJMP 12 moved to Leon Llido Street, General Santos City in the last quarter of  2002.  On April 2006 the regional office was again moved to a more spacious Leyva Building at Daproza Street, General Santos City where it is currently situated and now being headed by SSUPT MAGUMNANG M DIPANTAR, MPSA as the regional director.  Today BJMP12 has a total of 238 personnel regionwide.
