The contraband and unauthorized items seized included 290.2 grams of hashish, 50.2 grams of cannabis concentrate, 22 grams of tobacco and a cellular phone worth approximately $63,957.
A number of tools are used by the CSC to prevent drugs from entering its institutions including scanners and drug-detector dogs to search buildings, personal property, inmates and visitors.
CSC helps ensure a safe and secure environment for everyone by its heightening measures to prevent contraband from entering its institutions.
Working in partnership with the police, enables CSC to take action against those who attempt to introduce contraband into correctional institutions.
A complete smoking ban was introduced by CSC in 2008 in all federal correctional institutions
A telephone tip line has been set up by CSC for all federal institutions to help receive additional information about activities 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, 1‑866‑780‑3784, helps ensure that the information shared is protected and that callers remain anonymous.
