Leaving aside COVID-19, this year 2020 will also be remembered as one of the most memorable year for BJMP-IX with a whopping 25 jail officers who were ripe for promotion to the next higher rank.

          The recently released BJMP NHQ lineal list of officers for promotion named 19 SJO4 and 6 JORs who will continue to the next phase of the promotion process- the psychological assessment and psychiatric interview conducted on June 3 and June 12, respectively.

For the first time, BJMP promotion board allows videoconferencing as a means of communication, in this case, the conduct of assessment and interview processes. This year, SJO4 Ildemar Montifalcon, Regional Psychometrician and Phychologist, conducted the psychological assessment, whereas JSINSP DONNABELLE G QUINDIPAN, MD, BJMP Psychiatrist, for the Psychiatric Interviewthru online platforms, such as Webex and/or Messenger.

Even with the greater number of hopefuls from R9, JSINSP JENNIFER ADORNA, Regional Chief, PRM/HRD Division, confidently says, “We have higher chances of bagging the BJMP Jail Officer Ranks quota this year. Considering the time and grade of the lineal listed R9 HR for Promotion, then we should be promoted”. JSINSP ADORNA, who possesses her present rank for more than 8 years now, is one of the expectants of the final result for the CY 2020 BJMP Promotion.
