Vision of the Ministry of Justice

  • Social worker/chaplain of the respective prison draws up a release plan for the detainee including all necessary services, which is to be forwarded to the social worker/chaplain of the local municipality before the detainee is released. The social worker/chaplain of the local municipality pays a visit to the detainee at the prison.

  • The detainee has to visit his/her support person at the counselling centre during a short visit before the release.

  • After being released the detainee appeals to the regional counselling centre, where he or she will be counselled by the professionals (including by probation supervisors).

  • Detainee receives respective services.
