Manitoba wants to give hospital security guards power to intervene

March 26, 2019

The Manitoba government wants to give hospital security guards the power to detain violent individuals, according to an article on the CBC website.

Recently introduced legislation would provide security guards with the authority to enforce provincial laws when people and property are at risk.

Justice Minister Cliff Cullen said he wants detainment to be among the responsibilities for these empowered security guards, who would be described as institutional safety officers. 

The legislation described these safety officers as having similar duties to community safety officers and First Nations safety officers.
