RESCALED 
TOWARDS SMALL SCALE, DIFFERENTIATED AND COMMUNITY INTEGRATED DETENTION

Movement for Small Detention HOUSES

RESCALED advocates for detaining offenders in houses instead of prisons. Prisons cause problems. But problems can be solved. Detention houses are integrated in the community and differ in security level, services and activities. They enable more effective and humane punishment and contribute to safer and more inclusive communities.

Small Scale

… means that incarcerated persons spend their detention in houses. Limiting the capacity of these houses to 30 places or less allows for a more personal approach, less bureaucracy, better dynamic security and more opportunities to take responsibility and to interact with the community.

DIFFERENTIATION

... means that incarcerated persons are placed in the right security level and offered the most suitable programs. This has proven to work best in terms of facilitating their reintegration and rehabilitation and is cost effective.

INTEGRATION IN THE COMMUNITY

... implies a two-way interaction between the detention house and the community: incarcerated persons can make use of the services in society and each detention house has an added value for the local neighbourhood.
