Change of Command Ceremony at Grande Cache Institution

GRANDE CACHE, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 5, 2015) - Correctional Service Canada

On August 5, 2015, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) held a Change of Command Ceremony at Grande Cache Institution. This occasion marked the change in command from the outgoing Warden Arthur Ding, to the incoming Warden Paul Bailey.

The ceremony reinforces the responsibility of leadership in the role of Warden. It represents the symbolic passing of responsibility, authority, and accountability from one correctional leader to another.

"In many ways this is a symbolic event, but it's important to note that for the newly appointed leader, it represents their pledge to ensure that every decision they make respects CSC's Mission, the rule of law, and the rights of staff and inmates," said Don Head, CSC Commissioner. "Every change in leadership brings new thinking and new opportunities for growth and I am very pleased to be here to help to commemorate this event," added Mr. Head.

This ceremony is an important tradition for CSC. It reaffirms the incoming leader's pledge to support CSC's mission and contribute to the safety and security of the public, employees and offenders.
