Abstract

The community service order is an alternative to avoid imprisonment in the Draft Criminal Code (RKUHP). However, the community service order is less well known to the public because it is a new type of sanction compared to imprisonment. After all, the judges impose the most. Therefore, it is necessary to study the challenges and expectations of community service order as an alternative to imprisonment in the RKUHP because it has become the prima donna in law enforcement. This research is normative legal research, and the results show that the challenges of community service order as an alternative to imprisonment come from the community and law enforcement officers because detention has become the Primadonna. Meanwhile, community service order crimes provide good hope to reduce the overcapacity of Correctional Institutions, help the community and the state, and are cheaper than the application of imprisonment. Therefore, to ratify the RKUHP, there is no rejection; it needs to spread to the public.
