New research project “Police-Issued Eviction Order”

On 1 September 2017 KFN has started researching the topic Police-Issued Eviction Order. In the course of the amendments made by the Act on the Protection against Violence in 2002, police regulations of the federal states were also adapted and instruments for temporary referral from the housing (so-called eviction order) for 14 days. This reference can be pronounced by the police in case of domestic violence. In the context of the present study, questions about the phenomenon, the measures implemented following an eviction order as well as the effect are to be answered. The focus is always on cases of domestic violence in which children are affected. In this context, the Youth Office is to be emphasized as a central actor, which is to be informed in such cases and in cases with an additional eviction order by the police.
