News release

September 8, 2021 – Kingston, Ontario – Correctional Service Canada

On September 3, 2021 at approximately 9:25 pm, as a result of the vigilance of staff members, a package containing contraband and unauthorized items was seized at Bath Institution, a medium-security facility.

The seized items included tobacco, drugs, cell phones and cell phone accessories. The total estimated institutional value of the seizure is $23,830.

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) uses a number of tools to prevent drugs from entering its institutions. These tools include ion scanners and drug-detector dogs to search buildings, personal property, inmates and visitors.

CSC has measures in place to prevent contraband from entering its institutions in order 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, 1‑866‑780‑3784, helps ensure that the information shared is protected and that callers remain anonymous.
