Offenders who pose a potential danger to society and individuals are in focus of the media and of criminal policy. Spectacular crimes, prison breakouts and cases of brutal and/or frequent recidivism regularly draw attention to this particular category of perpetrators. On the one hand, criminal justice systems are obliged to protect society from these persons. On the other hand, they are also required to comply with human rights. For this group of perpetrators, the interplay between security and the offenders rights is especially striking.
