DOJ on FACEBOOK

07 May 2010

Acting Secretary of Justice Alberto C. Agra recently approved the creation of the “DOJ Facebook” to link officials and employees of the Department nationwide – a first for a national government agency.

It is important “to harness technology to serve the ends of justice and to provide a timely, cost-effective and modern means of communication” said Agra. In Department Circular No. 28, he issued the necessary guidelines for access and monitoring to the website while stressing the need to maintain service standard excellence and to improve work productivity. Social networking sites are not allowed during office hours.

The DOJ offices in Padre Faura, Manila are now connected via WIFI technology. It continues to roll-out its information and communication technology (ICT) implementation plan for regional, provincial and city prosecution offices.

“This project is to provide a dynamic and interactive forum for the DOJ community”, said Assistant Secretary Geronimo L. Sy. “It also secures the uniform resource locator (URL) for the Department of Justice”, he said.

While site membership is initially for DOJ officials and employees, interested citizens may search “Department of Justice” and be part of the fan page.
