PADAYAG – Official Publication of BJMP Regional Office X

2020 padayag


Public service is going beyond the call of duty. It’s not limited to performing your assigned task, it means having the heart and genuine desire to serve those who can’t pay us back; those who can only smile as a sign of gratitude; those who are often neglected; and those who have less in life.


This quarter’s cover depicts the unspoken and unheard heroism of our Jail Officers. People are barely aware of the sacrifices that our personnel must make in order to keep our jails COVID-free. Despite being hidden behind our high perimeter walls, our heroes in gray uniform never get tired of doing what needs to be done.


Welcome Kiss: The cover photo is the winning piece from Malaybalay City Jail which was chosen as the 1st Place Winner in the 2020 BJMP National Photography Contest. It depicts the love that a Jail Officer has for his family and his profession and the corresponding responsibility and sacrifice that this love entails.


This quarter’s publication portrays the hope that the people are holding in their hearts. Yes, 2021 brings uncertainties however, it also brings endless possibilities and opportunities for us to do and live better. This is our way of waving goodbye to the past year which has been quite a tough and challenging one, and welcoming this year with a hopeful heart and positive attitude.
