Bavarian Competence Centre for Deradicalisation

The Network for Prevention and Deradicalisation against Salafism was established all over Bavaria in order to counter the danger of radicalisation. A major pillar of this network is the "Competence Centre for Deradicalisation", which has been established at the Bavarian Land Criminal Police Office (BLKA).

Its primary task is to coordinate deradicalisation activities where possible in order to prevent religiously motivated individuals who are at risk of radicalising, are undergoing a radicalisation process or are already radicalised from harming themselves and others.

The Competence Centre for Deradicalisation is responsible in this context for

  • coordinating facts which indicate where deradicalisation activities could be deployed, focussing on the group of phenomena constituted by Salafism in Bavaria,
  • answering questions posed by public bodies regarding topics related to deradicalisation in Bavaria, including ensuring an exchange of information with partners within the Deradicalisation Network in Bavaria and at national level, as well as cooperation with a civil society organisation which offers and takes on advising and guiding for individuals who are at risk of becoming radicalised, or who are already radicalised.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
