Support for young people and adolescents through youth justice assistance

In the case of investigations and/or criminal proceedings against young people (14-17 years old) or adolescents (18-20 years old) who have come into conflict with the law, the youth courts automatically use youth court assistance to support the young person or adolescent and their legal guardians or family members.

A specialist team consisting of (social pedagogical) staff of the competent body advises the young people or adolescents in the run-up to the investigation, accompanies them to the court proceedings if necessary, and also takes care of them after the completion of the proceedings. necessary reintegration measures. Insofar as no probation officer is appointed by the Youth Court, the Youth Court Assistance also supervises the fulfilment of the judicial requirements and instructions.
