  BJMP Bureau of Jail Management and Penology is an attached agency of the Department of the Interior and Local Government  mandated to direct, supervise and control the administration and operation of all district, city and municipal jails in the Philippines with pronged tasks of safekeeping and development of its inmates. JAIL A place of confinement for persons held in lawful custody; specifically   : such a place under the  jurisdiction of a local government (as a county) for the confinement of persons awaiting trial or those convicted of minor crimes.  FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS 1. ADMINISTRATION An essential first step in planning of administrative functions for a correctional facilities is to determine the generalization pattern of authority. The agency having jurisdiction over the facility establishes the pattern, generally without the participation of the planners, although it will form the basis for spaces planning. 2. CORRECTIONAL PROGRAM Program functions include all areas of activity which involve the professional treatment of inmates to influence change in attitude and behavior.    Counseling    Casework    Clinical services    Education    Vocational training    Work-releases or study releases 3. LIBRARY Library services function as the information and library materials center supporting the institutional program. Larger the facilities need libraries with no fewer than 6,000 volumes, or at least 10 books per inmate. 4. COMMISSARY This is where inmates purchase personal items, such as cigarettes, combs, candy, juice, and as many minor items as the administration wants to stock. A central commissary needs sufficient space and display to see the items available, so they can order without delay.  5. BARBER  Barber facilities may be located centrally or in individual housing units. If they are decentralized, the chairs should be removable for storage while not in use. Generally inmates shave themselves, and barber services only apply to haircuts. 6. RECEPTION AND DISCHARGE The reception and discharge units is the point of institutional entry or departure for all prisoners. the entry process can be important in determining the inmates later attitude and behavior since it is his initial institutional impression. Due to the high percentage of drug addicts received by detention facilities, a major segment of newly receive prisoners will undergo withdrawal, which is no longer a problem if methadone is administrated. From 3 to days, and medical observation must be maintained during this time. 7. MEDICAL SERVICES The correctional institution has an explicit responsibility to protect and maintain the health of inmates and to prevent the spread of disease among the prisoner population. Those inmates who are found to be ill upon admission should be placed in the infirmary for treatment. The centralized medical facilities of a prison consist of an inpatient and outpatient department. In additional to general medical treatment, a program of dental care requires a dental suite consisting of one more treatment rooms and laboratory. 8. FOOD SERVICES One of the most important and difficult operation in any correctional facilities is the preparation and serving of three meals a day to the inmates population and to the staff. The food preparation is accomplished in a central kitchen facility having major areas for receiving,  storage and preparation of food, cooking dishwashing, and garbage disposal. Central dining room adjacent to kitchen local dining rooms in housing units feeding in inmates cell's. 9. CENTRAL DINING Central kitchen adjacent to the kitchen facilitates delivery of prepared food and return of spoiled dishes to dishwashing area, generally located in the kitchen. Dining may takes place in a single room or be sectioned off to reduce an excessive large group of inmates congregating in a single space. 10. LOCALIZED DINING Localized dining in housing units eliminates the problem of large number of inmates congregating together is more ideally suited to the type of facility that promotes a correctional program based on a group interaction. 11. CELL DINING Cell dining is the least desirable method and should be restricted only to the small minority of inmate who pose disciplinary problems. 12. STAFF DINING Staff dining is generally treated as separate function from inmate dining.
