Abstract

The Indonesian Criminal Justice System places imprisonment or coaching in Correctional Institutions as the final settlement of a crime. The imposition of imprisonment sentence has resulted in overcrowding in almost all correctional institutions in Indonesia. The conditions have resulted in the unideal process of coaching and service for Correctional Assisted Residents (WBP) as stipulated in Law Number 22 of 2022 Concerning Corrections. Imprisonment has many psychological and social impacts and is a financial burden for the state. Along with the development of crime in society caused by changes in the order of social life along with developments in information technology, it demands the Criminal Law System transform this situation, especially in imposing criminal sanctions on perpetrators of crimes. This research used the Empirical Juridical Method by conducting legal comparisons. The problem formulated in this study is how Law Number 22 of 2022 regulates alternative punishment and whether or not Law Number 22 of 2022 can provide a solution to overcrowding in correctional institutions in Indonesia. The objective of this study is to analyze whether Law Number 22 of 2022 regulates alternative criminal solutions in solving overcrowding problems in Correctional Institutions.
