Services

JuWe provides a broad range of services to detained persons while and after they are serving a sentence.

  • JuWe ensures medical and psychiatric care for detainees.
  • JuWe provides religious and spiritual counselling to detainees. The counsellors help detainees to cope with personal crises.
  • Detainees are offered basic education. They are given the opportunity to carry out work assignments in the penal institutions and to complete an appropriate vocational training.
  • JuWe provides probation assistance to detainees in order to support their offence-free reintegration into society. The Probation and Executive Services are in charge of probation assistance and provide the necessary social and technical assistance.

Reintegration

The JuWe specialists use various measures to work towards the reintegration of offenders into society. It is a major contribution to public safety and security if former detainees are able to live an offence-free life after their release.
