In June 2019, it was announced that the Correctional Service of Canada will have a new weapon against drones. Its main goal is to flight with contraband such as delivering drugs, cellphones and other dangerous packages into the facilities. The total cost of installing radar-based drone detection equipment at six institutions is $6 million.

Staff members have reported finding elements of drone on prison grounds, or spotting the unmanned aerial devices flying above prison facilities at night. Following a spike in drone incidents, the federal agency had launched a tender inviting companies to bid on a contract to build a radar system that would detect drones in the air and packages thrown over the prison walls and fences.
