The results show that the current implementation of imprisonment as part of the penal justice system needs to be reoriented immediately considering that most of the current penal sanctions both in the Penal Code (KUHP) and in the concept of the New Penal Code are still using a form of sanction in the form of imprisonment. The implementation of imprisonment in Indonesia is currently carried out by correctional institutions as a guidance institution in the implementation of crimes in order to achieve the objectives of punishment, protection of human rights, and also to determine the penal justice system as expected.
