Some 180 personnel of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) graduated recently from the Personnel Reformation Program in a bid to enhance the productivity of the agency’s men.
In a ceremony held at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) Wednesday, BuCor Spokesman Alberto Tapiru, Jr. told the graduates to be “honest” in their service and not to be “tempted” by any illegal activities if they do not “want to get lost.”
The Personnel Reformation Program is aimed at enhancing the productivity of BuCor personnel, both uniformed and non-uniformed, by helping them understand the value of being corruption-resistant public officers, thereby, allowing them to work effectively and efficiently.
Lectures on servanthood, moral recovery program, and civil servant values reformation were also conducted in a three-week activity, which started October 21.
The BuCor said in a statement that the outcome of the activities would help graduates understand the “ills of corruption and its drastic effects and improve awareness on the crime of corruption.”
Through the program, graduates would also be able to “re-visit the value of accountability of public officers to the people and deepen appreciation on the role of personal integrity in making difference in public service,” the BuCor added.
