Whitehorse Correctional Centre - Whitehorse, Yukon
The Whitehorse Correctional Centre (WCC) opened in March 2012. It is a modern “Generation Three” style correctional facility that includes safety features and design that are second to none in Canada. This is a multi-level security facility for both men and women with a rated capacity of 190 offenders.
SWS Detention Group supplied and installed all detention and non-detention hollow metal doors and frames (600+ openings). We also supplied and installed specialized detention wood cell doors in the general population areas, the second facility where we have successfully provided these doors which offer both security and a more residential look to the facility.
SWS also provided security elements at cell windows, cell furnishings and all dayroom furnishings.
