Seizure of con­tra­band at Dorch­ester In­sti­tu­tion

Sackville Tribune - - COMMUNITY -

On Sept. 18, staff mem­bers seized a pack­age con­tain­ing con­tra­band at Dorch­ester In­sti­tu­tion, a medium se­cu­rity fed­eral in­sti­tu­tion.

The con­tra­band seized in­cluded 128 nico­tine patches. The to­tal es­ti­mated in­sti­tu­tional value of this seizure is $12,800.

The Cor­rec­tional Ser­vice of Canada (CSC) is height­en­ing mea­sures to pre­vent con­tra­band from en­ter­ing its in­sti­tu­tions to help en­sure a safe and se­cure en­vi­ron­ment for ev­ery­one. CSC also works in part­ner­ship with the po­lice to take ac­tion against those who at­tempt to in­tro­duce con­tra­band into cor­rec­tional in­sti­tu­tions.

CSC has set up a tele­phone tip line for all fed­eral in­sti­tu­tions so that it may re­ceive ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion about ac­tiv­i­ties re­lat­ing to se­cu­rity at CSC in­sti­tu­tions. Th­ese ac­tiv­i­ties may be re­lated to drug use or traf­fick­ing that may threaten the safety and se­cu­rity of visi­tors, in­mates and staff mem­bers work­ing at CSC in­sti­tu­tions.

The toll-free num­ber, 1-866780-3784, helps en­sure that the in­for­ma­tion shared is pro­tected and that call­ers re­main anony­mous.
