Dorchester Penitentiary locked down after inmate assault

Dorchester Penitentiary
Lack of police training, closure of the province’s mental health court, and poor access to treatment in the province’s jails, remain significant hurdles.

A lockdown and search have been underway at Dorchester Penitentiary since Monday and all visits suspended after an inmate was assaulted, Correctional Service Canada announced on Friday.
