about

Relational security plays an important role in the Horten unit. Even though the target group of this facility are people with a long prison sentence, there is a safe and friendly environment in the facility between the residents and staff. This is partly due to the fact that staff is always present and accessible. Staff also participate in informal activities with residents, such as participating in yard golf tournaments, having coffee together, helping with work, etc.

Visited during the wish-eu project

Small-scale, differentiated and community-integrated facilities can be found in many European countries. There is not one, but a thousand detention houses. As part of the two-year WISH-EU Project, Prison Insider developed an interactive map that visualizes a database of detention facilities from various European regions. Throughout this European-funded project, we identified and visited over 40 good practices that apply one or more of the following principles: small-scale, differentiation and community-integration. Since then, RESCALED has continued to identify and visit practices whose stories can inspire us to drive systemic change. We have further developed the map to include various filters and detailed reports so you can get to know these inspirational practices!
