Work continues on the new South West Detention Centre (SWDC) in Windsor.. It is a $247 million investment in community safety, and will support more than 260 direct and in-direct jobs, including correctional officers, medical staff and support workers.
The state-of-the-art, 315-bed maximum security facility’s design offers more space for rehabilitative programs to support the successful reintegration back into the community. This also includes a new mental health unit, more efficient health care, and other services to ensure public, corrections staff and inmate safety.
The SWDC includes eight direct supervision living units, which encourages positive interaction between staff and inmates by placing correctional officers with inmates in the areas they live in.
