A jail can otherwise hardly with enthusiastic customer advertising. In the case of the new crisis intervention Department (KIA) in Dietikon there are, however, multiple praise from prisoners. "I'm glad you have so much time for me", say it in a feedback. Or: "In my current state I can't imagine to be in another prison."
Since 11. February, the special Department is in prison Limmattal open. It offers space for nine pre-trial detainees who are in acute crisis. The biggest difference to the normal U -: there are more contacts to other inmates. In the Department, for example, is eaten in common, the gender separation is repealed. No place for violent criminals who are a danger to others.
pot plant as a mood enhancer
the inmates of nursing professionals and a psychiatrist who is located in a meeting room with a potted plant and animal calendars are taken Care of. The oppressive prison atmosphere should be mitigated slightly. Long the prisoners are not allowed to remain. After a maximum of three weeks they are sent back into the regular U-detention. Your condition is not, or suicidal thoughts acute, can be improved, you come to the psychiatric clinic in Rheinau.
After all, with the Plant: The living room.
Director of Justice Jacqueline Fehr (SP) said today, Friday, at an appointment. "We must not forget that these detainees are not convicted, and in the midst of their everyday lives were torn." This could cause a shock.
To date, suicidal inmates have been brought to a clinic that is not equipped for the care of prisoners. Most of the prisoners were housed in Isolation, which were missing for other patients.
Positive side-effect for the Canton: He saves thanks to the new System of money. During a day in the clinic, Rheinau 1500 francs, it is in the new special Department only the half of it. Director of justice Fehr stressed, however, that it is primary to the prisoners. "It is not our goal, to save money."
capture is the case, Flaach
the trigger for this offer is the suicide of the 27-year-old woman from Flaach, ZH, who was killed by 2015 their two children. She was initially brought into the closed Department of a psychiatric clinic in Rheinau. After the acute crisis was seemingly overcome, was evacuated in a security cell in prison. The prison management and the competent psychiatrist left the young woman so closely guarded that they had no opportunity for suicide. This Arrangement, however, was so restrictive that it was dissolved after a short time. In the summer of 2015, she killed herself in the end.
Director of Justice, Fehr announced to improve the conditions in the detention center, to prevent suicide whenever possible. In addition to the new Department has been implemented in the past two years, therefore, a whole range of other improvements. For example, the time was extended outside of the cell. Today, the prisoners are only included on the weekend 23 hours. During the week, the time is increased on the outside of the cell to seven hours.
In a next step, the prisoners are to be released at the weekend longer to get out. The visit times are to be laid, also, more on the evening and the weekend, so if family members and especially children. Fitness and job offers were extended. An improvement is also the daily shower.
