CITY OF MALOLOS — “Sa loob ng tatlong taon ng ating panunungkulan ay patuloy ang pagtaas ng Crime Solution Efficiency sa ating lalawigan. Mula sa 8.50% noong taong 2010, umakyat ito sa 13.31% noong taon 2011 at nitong nakalipas na taong 2012, ito ay umabot sa 23.06 %.”

This was reported by Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado in his State of the Province Address or SOPA held at the Bulwagang Senador Benigno S. Aquino Jr. inside the Capitol building last July 2, 2013.

He added that the Average Monthly Crime Rate continues to decline from 44.23 in 2010 to 30.99 in 2011 and 20.49 in 2012.

The Provincial Government of Bulacan also strictly implemented the No Helmet, No Ride Policy to ensure the safety of the motorists, as well as the people of Bulacan.

Meanwhile, to ensure the effective performance of the Bulacan Provincial Jail’s (BPJ) guards, they were required to undergo six (6) trainings including the proper handling and use of their firearms.

Likewise, wearing of ID and Visitors' Pass was strictly enforced to all the visitors entering the jail premises.

”Isinagawa rin natin ang pagsasaayos ng mga kagamitan sa loob ng piitan tulad ng Alarm, Spotlight at Fire Extinguisher. Nagdagdag din tayo ng anim na mga two-way radio, service firearms at CCTV camera. Nilagyan natin ng perimeter fence ang buong kapaligiran ng piitan upang masiguro na walang makakapasok na di-awtorisadong tao at mga ipinagbabawal na mga gamit,” added the governor.

Training for five K-9 dogs was also conducted in order to assist the guards in tracking illegal drugs within the jail premises and to maintain peace and order in the area.

Life changing and values enhancing activities like mass, prayer meetings, bible seminars, and cursillo classes among others were also conducted to help the inmates in their transformation. ###
