Inmate transport policy map

A violent 2012 crash in northern New Brunswick saw a Sheriff's Services van slide off an icy highway and flip three times over an embankment. Five people on board were injured. Before the van pulled out from the jail that day, one of the Sheriff's Officers warned the roads were bad and recommended the cuffed & shackled inmates buckle up.
