Abstract

Punishment becomes a problem in the law system in Indonesia. The purpose of the punishment system is a form of protection for all Indonesian as stated in the Preamble of Constitution 1945 (UUD 1945). Punishment should consider humanism. The effectiveness of imprisonment is questionable, especially the negative effect. The prison condition causes some critics. Prison usually used as the education side for the criminals who gave birth the professional criminals. Punishment verdict does not necessarily in prison. If someone goes to jail, he will be a state burden and also the prison should serve so many facilities. Social work punishment should give benefit than imprisonment. The positive law regulation in the future (iusconstitutum) especially the regulation about social work punishment can be formulated better by protecting the society and rehabilitating theperpetrators of the crime as the main purpose. It is needed to formulate rightly about social work punishment,so they act effectively and reach the goal appropriately.
