Guide for families of detainees in French-speaking Switzerland

The association Carrefour Prison published in December 2008 a guide in French addressed to the families of detainees held in prisons standing on the French-speaking part of Switzerland. It explains rules of the detention world to persons living outside. The guide tells how to visit a detainee, the possibility of taking a child along or offering a parcel, the way to call a person inside or for him or her to call outside. For each prison, rules are different.

To order the guide, you need to call the 022 310 55 51. The guide is free for families of detainees and costs CHF 30 for experts and the public
