Contraband is a major issue behind the walls and can be anything from a “homemade” shank by inmates or drugs/weapons smuggled inside the prison in various ways. The problem is not only the different types of contraband in the prison; the questions also include how it was smuggled inside the walls, what are some ways to prevent its entry into prisons, and what are different types of contraband found in prisons. The researchers chose this topic to determine the nature and status of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) personnel against contrabands, identify different items of contraband that exist, and know various measures that can be undertaken to minimize the problem encountered by BJMP personnel against contrabands. The researchers utilized a descriptive method as the research design because this method describes the nature of the situation as it exists at the time of the study and explores the causes of particular phenomena. The researchers utilized purposive sampling, which is a nonprobability sampling method that occurs when elements selected for the sample are chosen by the judgment of the researcher. Researchers often believe that they can obtain a representative sample by using sound judgment, which will save time and money. The instruments used in gathering data were survey questionnaires, interviews, and observation. The respondents were described according to different demographic profiles. A total of 40% of the respondents are from the age range of 34–41 years old. A total of 90% of the respondents are male, 80% are married, and 80% are college graduates. Different contrabands exist in Makati City Jail, such as deadly weapons, vices, and gadgets. The BJMP personnel also encounters common problems at Makati City Jail. The results of the study can be used in developing enhancement programs, training, and continuing updates through seminars concerning the campaign against contraband inside the jail for better and more effective techniques and procedures.
