AGM Keynote on the Toronto South Detention Centre

At LAMP’s recent AGM our keynote speaker was Rose Buhagiar, the director of the Toronto South Detention Centre, who has held senior positions in corrections for 28 years. The new facility is still under construction on Kipling and Horner and is set to open in 2013. The correctional centre replaces the Don Jail and the Toronto West Detention Centre (on the former site of the Mimico Correctional Centre). It also operates an intermittent Centre which supports an additional 320 inmates serving weekend sentences, which has been operational since last December.

Here is some press coverage on the event:
