Abstract

As one of the sub-systems of criminal justice, correctional institutions (Lapas) have a role in the implementation of
fostering prisoners and correctional students through a correctional system based on education, rehabilitation, and
reintegration. In Law Number 12 of 1995 concerning Corrections, it is stated that the correctional system is held in
order to form correctional inmates so that they become fully human, realize mistakes, improve themselves, and do not
repeat criminal acts so that they can be accepted again by the community. However, in its development, the guidance
carried out is not optimal due to the complexity of the problems that occur in prisons. One of the root causes of problems
in prisons/detention centers is overcapacity. Various policies have been taken to overcome the overcapacity problem,
including through building rehabilitation to the construction of new buildings with the aim of increasing the capacity of
prisons and detention centers. However, this policy was not significantly able to overcome the problem of overcapacity
considering the increasing number of detainees and inmates who are still much more as a result of the high level of
crime in the community. Efforts that may be more appropriate to do to overcome the excess capacity in prisons can be
taken by using a Restorative Justice approach, namely a shift in punishment in the criminal justice system that prioritizes
justice for victims and perpetrators of criminal acts in addition to alternative punishments such as social work. and
others. this policy was not significantly able to overcome the problem of overcapacity considering the increasing number
