Manitoba government funds new detention center for police in Brandon

Brandon, man. – The Manitoba government is investing millions more in a new detention center at police headquarters in Brandon.

This is the latest in a series of recent crime-related pledges from the province.

Premier Heather Stefanson says the Progressive Conservative government will do everything in its power to support law enforcement and public safety.

The money is to be used to build new permanent holding cells that will replace temporary modular cells, and the province says it will be a safer environment for officers and detainees.

The project was first announced two years ago with an expected price tag of $4.4 million.

The new cost is $8.9 million, and the government says the increase is due to inflation.
