Barton Guards Want Body Scanners

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

Reports of the illicit drug problem at the Barton Street jail is  nothing new to the Corrections Officers there.

Stephen Smith is the President of their union–OPSEU Local 248– and he  says every inmate is checked by a strip search, but what they really  need are body scanners, similar to the type used in airports.

Smith says scanners are pricey and a low priority for the Ministry of Corrections.
