Our Department

Great diversity

Werner Ignaz Jans - Willkommen

Nearly 1900 employees work within the General Secretariat, in 4 offices, 3 special offices and 6 services – and by the way: not only as lawyers and office clerks, as one could assume.

The Department of Justice and Home Affairs is the workplace of many employees with different careers, from trainers for crafts and trades to psychologists in a penal institution or social workers in probation and correction services to mathematicians in the Statistical Office or caterers in the State Archives. This diversity, however, also means that every Office has its own corporate culture and philosophy.
