We were at the open house a few weeks ago before it opened. I am no expert in design of these types of institutions but my partner has been a sheriff for 15 years, and indicated that there are some very concerning aspects of the design of the new facility. The "open concept" is one for sure, but there are other things that make the facility more dangerous.
I do question the timing of the report though. This should have been brought forward years ago, not a week before it opened.
My partner is now on strike, whihc has less to do with the safety issues at the remand, and more to do with the fact that the staff who raised concerns were reprimanded. So much for that whistle-blower legislation that was put in place on April 1st
