Those in ‘security sensitive’ positions tested regularly
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/09/2012 -- Canadian Forces Bad Borden officers sounded an alarm regarding drug presence in Ontario locations, according to records.
“There has been a substantial spike in the increasing number of drug-related instances in the CFB Borden area,” according to the March brief for the commander of the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service (CFNIS).
The document noted that there had been a seven-year space between “key arrests… from this particular geographical area.”
“It appears the Base Commander of CFB Borden has become increasingly alarmed with the amount of drug related files on his base,” added the briefing note obtained under the Access to Information law.
The CFB Borden trains over 15,000 military personnel annually. The base employs 3,250 military and 1,500 civilian individuals.
Major Kevin Cadman, who is deputy commanding officer of CFNIS, stated that the services take into account any and all concerns raised by commanders of the base when it determines allocation of investigative resources.
“In this particular one, when Borden brings up some issues we’ll surely pull some resources together to have a look at that,” he said.
Cadman declined to speak upon particular details of various CFNIS activities, citing security reasons.
“There has been no development in the Borden area that is any different than across the country,” Cadman added, noting that the Canadian Forces is in many ways a reflection of society.
“We are going to get those members that have a usage problem and some of them who were trafficking in their civilian lives will bring that to the CF,” Cadman said.
There is a noted “substantial spike in the increasing number of drug related instances in the CFB Gagetown area” within New Brunswick. The military noted 42 personnel involved in usage and trafficking use in 2009.
In 2010, there had been plans to target trafficking of drugs, but the plan did not proceed as individuals within particular units had already been disciplined, while others were no longer serving.
Cadman noted that he personally had not seen particular increases in drug use in the Canadian military forces. The military conducts drug tests for “safety sensitive” occupations, including Afghanistan detail or submarine, driving, and specialization positions.
