Institution remains in lockdown

     As of Monday the Drumheller Institution remains in lockdown.
    At approximately 11:44 a.m. on January 28, 2012, Drumheller Institution, a medium security federal penitentiary, was placed on lockdown to facilitate the search of the institution as a result of inmate assaults.
    The search is being conducted to ensure the ongoing safety and security of the institution, its staff and the inmates. The institution will re-open as soon as the search is complete and it is determined safe to do so.
    Visits will be suspended until the search has been completed.
    In order to improve its practices to prevent and reduce future incidents, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) will continue to work in an effort to review the circumstances surrounding the incident and take action where necessary.
