Drumheller Institution under lockdown

penn

Correctional Service Canada - On March 24, 2019 at about 9:00 a.m., a lockdown was put in place in the medium security unit at Drumheller Institution, to allow staff to conduct a search of the institution following an inmate altercation.

The search was ordered in the medium security unit to ensure the safety and security of the institution, its staff and inmates. Visits have been suspended until the search is completed. Normal operations will resume as soon as it is considered safe to do so.

In order to improve practices aimed at preventing this type of incident, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) will continue to review the circumstances surrounding this incident and take the appropriate measures.
