Suomenlinna Open Prison

Suomenlinna Open Prison

Suomenlinna open prison is located in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. The facility is located on one of the islands that make up the Suomenlinna district, a district of Helsinki. Suomenlinna open prison was founded in 1971 as a subordinate to Helsinki Provincial Prison. It was established so the people in detention could help with renovating and maintaining the Suomenlinna fortress which is UNESCO world heritage. Renovating and maintaining the fortress is still one of the possible activities for the residents but the possibilities have broadened since then. Suomenlinna open prison has developed into an independent facility and was transformed into an open prison in 2006.

about

All the activities during their sentence serve a rehabilitative function. Every resident gets assigned a senior instructor with whom they create a sentence plan. With this programme they try to prepare the resident for probational liberty. The designated senior instructor evaluates the resident in a so-called ‘VAPSU-team’. These are meetings with the staff where a problematic situation or possible changes in the residents weekly schedule can be discussed.

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!
