DAGUPAN CITY – The Dagupan City Jail – Male Dormitory was conferred the Seal of Sustinidong Paglilinis ng Bilangguan (SPB) by the Bureau of Jail and Management Penology Chief Jail Director Serafin P. Barretto Jr. in a ceremony inside the jail on March 27.
The award, which was inscribed in the building, was jointly unveiled by Barretto and Mayor Belen T. Fernandez in the presence of other BJMP officials from the region and the province of Pangasinan.
The seal of SPB is in recognition of the Dagupan City Jail – Male Dormitory’s efforts in maintaining and sustaining a clean jail facility, which is free from corruption, illegal drugs and other contrabands under the stewardship of Jail Superintendent Kenneth A. Bid-ing, the city’s jail warden.
“We give our highest commendation to the men and women of the Dagupan City Jail under the very able leadership of Jail Superintendent Bid-ing for earning the Seal of Sustinidong Paglilinis ng Bilangguan from the Bureau of Jail and Management Penology hierarchy. Our city is truly blessed with awards which keep on coming like the two Seals of Good Local Governance we received for two consecutive years now,” said Fernandez.
Bid-ing, on the other hand, expressed his gratitude to Fernandez for the support that the facility has been receiving from the city government like providing free medical and dental missions to the male and female dormitories among others.
