NVPJ benchmarks Pangasinan Provincial Jail

Pangasinan Provincial Jail (PPJ) Chief Lovell U. Dalisay welcomed the Nueva Vizcaya Provincial Jail (NVPJ) Team on their two-day benchmarking visit from June 29 to June 30.

Led by the NVPJ Warden and currently the National Vice President of the Provincial Warden Association of the Philippines (PWAP), Carmelo Andrada, the team chose to benchmark PPJ because of its significant achievements in rehabilitation programs for PDLs such as livelihood, skills development, and education, among others.

PPJ and NVPJ shared their respective best practices on the health, well-being, safety, and protection of PDLs.

The NVPJ lauded PPJ for its various best practices, apart from its recent declaration as a drug-free, cleared-controlled facility.

These best practices include increased food allowance for the PDLs (currently at P120.00/day); organic farming; the conduct of assessments and examinations for personnel about the rules, regulations, policies, and PAPs of the facility and the province; the formulation of a defense and fire plan; the conduct of a quarterly simulation exercise; and the quarterly conduct of medical and dental missions for PDLs and personnel.

The NVPJ also shared their commendable best practices, such as the established and functional health service section with a registered nurse on duty; computer sets (donated by the Department of Information and Communications Technology under their Tech4ed program) used for the E-Dalaw and Alternative Learning System for PDLs with elementary, junior high, and senior high school levels; and the practice of personnel and visitors taking home their trash.

The team likewise had a tour of the Provincial Capitol, the Pangasinan Polytechnic College (PPC), and the Banaan Pangasinan Provincial Museum, leaving the entire team in a state of awe.

Moreover, the PPJ team discussed and shared the various ongoing significant projects like the Pangasinan Link Expressway (PLEX), Reflective Pool, and Salt Farm, among others, that bespeak the kind of leadership under Gov. Ramon V. Guico III.
