Ontario Enhances Safety for Probation and Parole Officers in the North

THUNDER BAY — The Ontario government is providing probation and parole officers in the North, with new safety devices for use when travelling to and through remote regions. The new devices will help ensure the health, safety and well-being of frontline staff by providing two-way voice and text communication as well as enhanced live monitoring such as fall and no-motion detection, silent alarm activation and missed check-ins that allows for quicker notification to emergency personnel in crisis situations. The device’s direct link to satellite capability also enables monitoring when staff are working indoors.
