“Enhanced security protocols” have uncovered contraband in the island’s Corrections facilities, according to Wayne Caines, the Minister of National Security.

Mr Caines added that a Corrections officer had sustained minor injuries as a result of a recent assault.

In a statement this morning, Mr Caines said there had been collaboration between the ministry and the leadership at the Department of Corrections to increase prison security.

“The Bermuda Police Service are investigating both matters in conjunction with the Department of Corrections. These offences will be addressed internally and through the courts.

“I wish to commend the Officers at the Department of Corrections and the Bermuda Police Service for their steadfast and diligent service.”
