About 30 people work in this office, and our scope of work is the supervision of the institutions and the organisation and formulation of criminal politics.

These new concepts have helped us keep our prison population low and to respond to new issues as they arrive. As a relatively small ministry with a wide remit, working with European as well as national partners helps Bremen Ministry of Justice keep ahead of the curve, to develop smart and flexible solutions. Our accessible size also makes us a useful partner for testing new concepts, particularly in the area of juvenile justice and female prisoners.
