The new 5-hectare Misamis Oriental Provincial Jail and Rehabilitation Center will soon rise in Barangay Andales in the Municipality of Initao.
The proposed facility is designed to accommodate 1,000 persons deprived of liberty (PDLs) in two buildings separating male and female PDLs. Each cell has a double-deck bed designed to hold only 2 inmates at a time.
The complex will also have an Alternative Learning Center by the Technical Skills and Development Authority (TESDA) as well as a garden area.
The Provincial Jail is currently situated along Antonio Luna and Corrales Avenue in Cagayan de Oro City just a walking distance from the Provincial Capitol. Its transfer outside the city is long overdue.
