Business Community Anxious about BJMP’s Location


The Baliwag Business Community expressed some apprehension concerning the present location of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology facility located at the Baliwag Government Complex or BGC. BJMP is under the supervision of DILG. The business community found the area to be out of zone since it was built in an area classified as commercial. The BGC situated across SM City will have the Baliwag Business Center, Malasakit Center Extension with Dialysis Center and 24/7 Urgent Care, Baliwag Disaster Bldg., Red Cross, Baliwag Pavilion and the main campus of Baliwag Polytechnic College. At present, the Baliwag Star Arena, Baliwag PNP, DTI GO Negosyo, Baliwag One Stop Shop, and CENRO.
