UPDATE: Lockdown and Search Lifted at Joyceveille Institution

A lockdown put in place at Joyceville Institution last week has ended, and visits to the facility have resumed.

Corrections staff found a number of unauthorized items during an exceptional search of the institution, though just what was found hasn't been revealed.

The Correctional Service of Canada says the special precautions were put in place in the assessment unit on May 31, in order to allow staff to conduct an exceptional search.
     
No specific reason was given, but it was ordered to ensure the safety and security of the institution, its staff and inmates.
