Pursuant to § 1 of the Decree of the President of the Reich for the Protection of the People and the State, issued on February 28, 1933
(Reichsgesetzblatt I, p. 83), [the following individual] is placed under protective custody:

Date and place of birth: October 1, 1911, Dresden
Marital status: Married
Citizenship: German Reich
Place of residence: Berlin, 62 Kommandantenstraße, c/o Keil
F r ö h l i c h stands convicted of having engaged in extortion1 based on homosexuality.2 He contests the facts set out; however, as a result of the credible statements of a witness, he is declared guilty.
Placement under protective custody is necessary for the purpose of preserving public safety and order.
Because the extensive investigations cannot be completed within 7 days, I request that protective custody be authorized until the conclusion of the investigations. ps.
