Jail Guard’s Use Of Social Media Questionned By Ministry

Gave details of cell conditions for inmate

A guard at the Central North Correctional Centre in Penetanguishene is facing disciplinary action over his use of social media. The guard was called in to a hearing this week over entries on his personal Twitter account in May, which the Ministry of Correctional Services alleges were a violation of employer policies on personal use of social media. The tweets, some with photos, related to a prisoner held in segregation and the conditions of his incarceration.
