More guards, more training and better equipment are needed to keep drugs out of Saskatchewan jails, the union representing staff said after the recent death of an inmate on remand.
"Staff are asking for the tools," Saskatchewan Government and General Employees' Union President Bob Bymoen said after extending condolences to the deceased inmate's family.
The inmate's death, which happened at the Saskatoon Provincial Correctional Centre Wednesday, was likely the result of a drug overdose, Ministry of Corrections and Policing spokesperson Drew Wilby said.
