Violence and aggression against employees in the Hessian correctional

The report is based on a current, empirical survey on violence against staff in penal institutions in Hesse. The aim of this study is to inquire about the objective and subjective secu­rity situation of the employees and to gain a better overview of violence and aggressions against employees in Hessian prisons. Based on this data, risks in a professional context should be reduced as best as possible. It is concluded that employees working in the penal institutions are exposed to different levels of violence with specific characteristics de­pending on the form of imprisonment.
