Board Member Tirol pushes creation of “youth center home”

TWO months after the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act (JJWA) takes effect, Bohol and its 47 towns still do not have a youth detention and rehabilitation center as mandated by the new law.

The center is a half-way house for the youthful offenders now exempted from criminal liability and banned from joining adult rehabilitation centers.

Absent that, where do young victims go when authorities accost them in commission of a crime and turns them over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development who also send children who get in conflict with the law to youth homes while with diversion activities?

Sangguniang Panlalawigan Chairman for Committee on Women and Children Godofreda Tirol said she would ask Bohol officials to work for the immediate establishment of the youth home instead of pursuing with the planned Ubay extension of the Bohol Crisis and Intervention Center (BCIC).

“Actually, the BCIC wanted to expand as they plan to implement the Ubay extension center. But with the urgent need for a center or home for the CICL, I would want to use the P1.5M funds for the extension to build the much needed youth home,” the province’s top child advocate legislator said.

Right now, Bohol CICL numbering 164 of them have congested a DSWD managed rehabilitation center in Argao, making it virtually impossible for parents to get a corollary counseling to facilitate the child’s rejoining the society.

A documentary, which BM Trol shared to radio listeners bare that the painful reality that young criminals have pointed to their parents lack of attention and care as the culprits behind their transgressions.

Victims as they are to be seen now, these people deserve to be treated fairly to be productive when the could rejoin society, she pressed meaning the children offenders.

The immediate adoption of the Juvenile Justice Welfare Act (JJWA) or Republic Act 9344 puts over the Local Government Unit’s shoulders the responsibility to take into their care the children-in-conflict with the law (CICL), through an integrated program of intervention, mediation and diversion while adopted in Youth Homes.
