Abstract

The problem in this research is to analyze the health and social development prisoners in Indonesian prisons
in the future. The research method used is juridical empirical, namely analyzing the formulation of policies
on current correctional facilities and the health and social development of prisoners in Indonesian prisons
in the future. The results show that the current formulation policies in coaching prisoners are based on
Law No. 12 of 1995 concerning correction institutions. This policy has not fully provided the rights of
prisoners as assisted citizens. The number of prisoners currently in 33 Regional Offices of Law and Human
Rights, only 6 Regional Offices is not overcrowded. This will affect the development of prisoners in prisons.
Coaching carried out in prisons at this time has obstacles due to statutory factors, human resources in quality
and quantity as well as the legal culture of the community which has not provided optimal support for the
development of prisoners both inside and outside of prisons. In the future, based on policy studies, it is
necessary to carry out reformulation and reconstruction related to the development of prisoners in prisons
