Abstract

The correctional institution is a place for treatment the prisoners. The current condition, the responsibility
for treatment prisoners lies with the state, carried out by one institution without assistance from other
institutions, namely the Correctional Institution. The problems in this paper are first, what is the current
form of treatment for prisoners in Correctional Institution; second, how to reconstruct the form of treatment
for prisoners in Correctional Institutions in the future. This paper uses an empirical juridical research method
using the socio-legal approach. The results in this paper are first; the treatment aimed at current prisoners is
personality treatment and independence treatment. In practice, both of these treatments found obstacles in the
form of inadequate facilities and infrastructure and overcapacity of the Correctional Institution conditions,
which resulted in no ideal coaching; second; based on this, it is necessary to reconstruct treatment of prisoners
in the Correctional Institution. Reconstruction was carried out by developing a form of community-based
correction and the existence of cooperation from the private sector in the form of partnerships. If this is
realized, the purpose of the treatment process can be achieved, and the prisoner, after finished treatment, can
return to the community properly.
