Juveniles placed annually

In JUSAS, all stays in an institution or in a penal institution are recorded statistically if they were ordered according to the juvenile criminal law. These include pre-trial detention, precautionary protective measures (institutional observation, open or closed placement), protective measures stated in the judgment (open or closed placement) and imprisonment. In the course of the criminal investigation and the completion of sanctions, a placed person can have the type of placement changed. The evaluations cover one year and identify each person once for each type of placement.
