Medium-security Bath Institution is currently on lockdown, according to Correctional Service Canada (CSC).
A lockdown was put in place at the Institution at approximately 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2018. The lockdown was put in place to allow staff members to conduct an exception search of the Institution.
“The search was ordered to ensure the safety and security of the institution, its staff and inmates,” CSC said in a press release.
“Normal operations will resume as soon as it is considered safe to do so.”
Regularly scheduled visits may be affected, CSC said. Visitors who have already planned a visit are asked to contact the Institution directly.
