Forensic commitment

is the commitment of offenders to a mental hospital or a custodial addiction treatment facility. ZBFS has the technical supervisory oversight over the institutions with responsibility for funding and organising the forensic commitment in Bavaria. The main focus of this supervisory activity is on quality assurance in the institutions where offenders who have been commited involuntarily are held.
