What is important

Forensic Psychiatric Clinics are a security-oriented overall concept with the aim of enabling the treatment of patients in a protected area and protecting the public from them. To this end, various security and safety measures are used in Maßregelvollzugs and forensic facilities.

Type: residential character | Patient rooms, passage and airlock doors are equipped with mechanical and/or electronic security locks.

The standards for structural and electronic security measures in forensic psychiatric institutions in the form of mechanical elements have been continuously developed through intensive exchange of experience and technical progress. Security has the highest priority in forensics. Various security measures are used in the forensic psychiatric hospitals: In addition to high walls and fences, barred windows and camera surveillance, equipping doors and gates with suitable high-security locks contributes significantly to a secure process. It is important for security that the forensic clinic forms a closed system with only one central access via a specially secured gate system. The forensic complex should be shielded from the outside.

STUV Prison Solutions stands for quality and safety in the correctional and forensic sector. Our products are characterised by outstanding security and flexible customisation options. STUV high security locks meet the highest standards while not neglecting the homely character required in forensic psychiatry.

Versatile choice: Our locks are available for use in forensics with either profile cylinders or double-bit locking mechanisms to meet the individual requirements of the facilities.

Homely character: The installation option in special wooden doors to the patient rooms makes it possible to maintain the homely character without compromising on security.

Customised solutions: We offer various types of locks that meet a wide range of forensic requirements to ensure maximum security.

Quick recoding: In the event of a lost key, our locks can be recoded in seconds without tools to immediately restore forensic security.

Equipped facilities include forensic facilities in Essen, Dortmund, Lochow, Bernburg and Bedburg-Hau (Germany). By implementing the high-security locks, STUV Prison Solutions ensures additional protection for the patients and staff of these facilities.

Lochow Forensic Psychiatric Clinic

As a branch of the State Hospital for Forensic Psychiatry in Uchtspringe (Saxony-Anhalt, Germany), the Lochow Forensic Psychiatric Hospital has 80 places. About eight million euros were invested to convert a former Bundeswehr site for the tasks of the Maßregelvollzugs. It is located on an area of just under five hectares. Among other things, the facility houses patient rooms, service rooms as well as a kitchen and dining hall. The second main building, formerly a truck workshop, is available for occupational and sports therapy. Furthermore, there is a new building that houses the lock-secured entrance and exit area as well as the facility monitoring. The grounds are secured by a special fence. The fence is almost six metres high and made of NATO wire with climbing protection, detectors and camera surveillance.

LVR Clinic for Forensic Psychiatry Essen

The Clinic for Forensic Psychiatry at LVR-Klinikum Essen (North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany) has a total of 54 places. The facility is used for temporary placement in accordance with Section 126a of the Code of Criminal Procedure. Accordingly, patients are accommodated here if there are urgent reasons to believe that they have committed an unlawful act in a state of incapacity. Thus, the accommodation corresponds to a type of "pre-trial detention". The patients remain in the facility until their main hearing, after which they may be transferred to a psychiatric hospital.
