Laguna Provincial Jail reinforces prohibition on mobile phones

Laguna Provincial Jail  Office

January 25, 2019

 

   Following a report that cell phones are used freely by persons deprived of liberty (PDL), the Laguna Provincial Jail (LPJ) reinforced the prohibition on said gadgets inside the facility.

   A total of forty (40) mobile phones were confiscated while forty-six (46) were voluntarily surrendered by cell leaders of LPJ following recent surprise inspections and Oplan Greyhound operations.

   Oplan Greyhound is clearing operation under the BJMP that aims to ensure the safety of inmates inside their dormitories.

   LPJ Officer-in-Charge Supt. Norman V. Pinion (Ret.) reiterated his commitment to prevent smuggling of such contrabands inside LPJ, noting that there is only one call station inside the compound where PDLs can communicate with their friends and relatives on a pre-scheduled basis.

   In his dialogue with all cell leaders, he emphasized the use of mobile phones inside the facility will not be tolerated, hence the random and surprise inspections in the dormitories.

   This is not to mention confiscation of a myriad of deadly weapons such as pointed metals, scissors, metal spoons, nail cutters, screw driver, metal and wood saw, and Swiss knife.

   Pinion is set on implementing stricter security measures to ensure peace and order inside the LPJ compound, not only for the welfare of the PDLs but the safety of the visitors as well.
