Douglas Mental Health University Institute in Montreal has approved $4.5 million to upgrade security, according to an article on the Montreal Gazette website.
Three months after the facility set up a task force to curb escalating violence against staff, workers say not much has been done beyond some cosmetic improvements.
Some of the new security measures include:
• The installation of metal detectors and surveillance cameras
• Staff training
• Security guards are increasing their rounds
Union leaders and management are expected to meet again in October to assess the progress of the security upgrades.See the latest posts on our homepage
