The National Jail Management and Penology Training Institute (NJMPTI) serves as the training institution for Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) uniformed personnel. It was initially evolved in the latter part of 1991 which starts with a proposal to create the Jail Management and Penology Institute (JMPI). The committee members who initially conducted the study for JMPI were composed of the newly absorbed personnel from Police Constabulary/Integrated National Police purposely to train the personnel on jail duties. When the BJMP started its recruitment, the initial recommended venue for the first batch of recruits was at the Philippine National Training Command (PNTC), Camp Castaneda, Silang, Cavite on July 29, 1992, while the second batch was held at the former Metro Manila Rehabilitation Center (MMRC) now Metro Manila District Jail (MMDJ) on August 12, 1992 at Bicutan, Taguig City.

On November 4, 1993, the Institute was renamed the Jail Service Training Center (JSTC) and became one of the Constitutive Units of the Philippine Public Safety College (PPSC) which created to assume over-all responsibility for the training, human resource development and continuing education of the tri-bureaus. The training center was temporarily relocated from MMRC to PPSC main campus at Fort Bonifacio, Makati City.

On April 14, 1994 the Jail Service Training Center was again relocated to its new site in Camp BagongDiwa, Bicutan, Taguig City having its own building and facilities.

On July 1996, Jail Service Training Center (JSTC) was changed into Jail National Training Institute (JNTI) still located at Camp BagongDiwa, Bicutan, Taguig City. But the site, though good for JNTI for so many years was not destined to be its final destination.

On May 13, 2003 with the general policy of the PPSC to have its Constitutive Units to be co-located and within proximity with one another, comprehensive ocular inspection of its new site was made, hence, JNTI as it is known today was transferred at Camp Vicente Lim, Calamba City as its present home.



JNTI commits to develop Jail Officers as professionals and effective public servants by instilling them the discipline based on knowledge and respect for human rights, law and order, performance-oriented, and self-reliance precepts and promote in them service professionalism, integrity and nationalism.



Indoctrinate the BJMP uniformed personnel by providing comprehensive training on safekeeping and development of offenders to professionalize jail services.
