History

     The Panevezys Correction House is an institution enforcing custodial sentences imposed on female offenders. Currently all women and underage girls convicted in Lithuania serve their sentences at the Panevezys Correction House irrespective of their previous convictions, severity of the crime committed, regime or other criteria.

     At present, an average of 230 convicts serve their term at the Panevezys Correction House, including first-time convicts, those convicted a number of times, underage girls, women raising children (under the age of three years) in the mother-and-child unit, and women taken into custody.

     Educational opportunities for women prisoners are provided to aid in the rehabilitation process and reduce the likelihood of reoffending. The women have the opportunity to attend courses, study at a school for adults or undergo training offered by a Vocational Training Centre, including training in catering, hairdressing and sewing skills. The women are also given an opportunity to work at a sewing enterprise or do housekeeping work as part of the prison’s service brigade.
