Federal Office of Justice

Key facts

Although the enforcement of sentences and measures falls under the remit of the cantons, the Federal Office of Justice allocates operating subsidies of some CHF 70 million a year to 174 resi-dential educational facilities for children, adolescents and young adults. These centres host minors and young adults who have been remanded into care or custody in the interests of their protection, socialisation and, in the case of criminal measures, averting the risk of reoffending.
