The situation in detention facilities: We hurt people unnecessarily
"Stressed out staff. People who become isolated despite the fact that they should not. Major difficulties in relocating inmates who may pose a security risk. There are some of the consequences of the emergency and the lack of space within the prison and Probation service, witness häktespersonal on for the TT."

" Everything is about to clear of the day. To make the basic data has become more and more stressful. Then you can make a mistake, and to do it may in some situations be very fatal, " says kriminalvårdaren Aydin Amir."

"He works at the detention centre in Huddinge, just like so many other jails in the country have been overfilled last time, with an occupancy rate of over 100 per cent. In for example Malmö had it for a few weekends then completely put a stop – it was so full that one could not take any more."

" We have not said stop, however, we have tried to redirect shipments so that they go to other jails. The problem lately has been that it is difficult to send in the way inmates, to differentiate the clients and place them in a good way, " says Anders Lexell, kriminalvårdsinspektör, thus the head of department, in Huddinge, sweden."

"The high occupancy rate leads to a series of problems which in the worst cases can threaten security. An example is that staff will have less time for the individual inmates. To be able to sit down and talk for a while, which can be important to calm down the mood, the time is not."

" We shall of course try to break their isolation, for their sake and for our safety's sake. In order to make accurate and qualified assessment of risk of people, you must have the time to try to understand them, and the time is not enough to right now, " says Sevim Aslanzadeh, kriminalvårdsinspektör on Huddinges security office."

"It is also difficult to resettle prisoners for security reasons should not sit on the same title – there are no vacancies to move them to. Another problem is that many people who received their sentences and be released on the custody will remain in custody, the prisons are also full. So it is for a 40-odd clients become sentenced only on the detention facilities in the Stockholm area, according to Anders Lexell."

"– To be isolated is damaging, and many are becoming isolated unnecessarily. They might have claiming restrictions, but can not come to a gemensamhetsplats, or have been convicted but will not come out of the prison. When do we hurt people unnecessarily, " says kriminalvårdaren Daniel Lundberg."

"the lack of space also affects the detainees' contacts with their defenders. TT has spoken with several lawyers who testify to the fact that today is much harder to get in contact with clients than in the past. When they call in to the jails, it can take an hour to arrive. There is a lack of visiting rooms to book, since they in many cases have been converted to a living area. Sometimes you can get the answer that you can speak with his client on the phone first after 22 in the evening."

"A recently released forecast from the prison and Probation service shows that häktesklienterna is only going to increase, by 7 percent by 2022. At the same time, has the prison service launched a cost-cutting program, due to huge deficit in the budget."

"At many jails have you solved the problems with dubbelbelägga rooms. But Aydin Amir call it a stopgap measure that does not hold in the long run:"

"– so Far we have been lucky, but I hope not we end up in the situation that we are forced to put two detained in the same room who do not want it. I almost think we are on our way there, as a kind of akutlösning, ”this can handle you, it's just for one night, just a week”. Something happens, then we have failed tremendously with our mission."

"The one who is suspected of a serious offence can be detained by the court pending the investigation. A detained person is only suspected of a crime and are considered innocent until a conviction."

"pre-trial Detention may be decided on:"

"the Crime gives at least one year in prison"

"There is a risk that the suspect continues to commit a crime."

"There is a risk of destruction of evidence if the suspect is released"

"the Investigation is being hampered in another way, if the suspect is on the loose"

"The court's decision on pre-trial detention shall be reviewed fortnightly if the suspect is not placed on the free foot."
