Imprisonment in our Criminal Code (KUHP) is currently still in the main form of criminal sanction, imprisonment as regulated in the Criminal Code (KUHP) as the dominant choice of criminal sanctions in tackling crime has always received criticism, because in its implementation it does not fulfil with the purpose of punishment. Meanwhile, the current prison sentence is still far from the values of justice, while the Criminal Code Bill has not been ratified. There needs to be an alternative form of criminal sanctions other than imprisonment so that the purpose of punishment can be achieved, then the idea of a criminal outside of prison or what is known as a non-imprisonment is appear. The purpose of this research is to analyse the paradigm shift from imprisonment to non-imprisonment. The research method used is normative juridical. The results of this research are the paradigm shift from imprisonment to non-imprisonment has been carried out by many countries in the world, especially European countries such as the Netherlands, In Indonesia itself, the idea of non- imprisonment began to emerge which is actually started in Law No. 11 of 2012 concerning the Juvenile Criminal Justice System, and has even been stated in the Criminal Code Bill. Many problems arise related to the implementation of imprisonment, which are still overcapacity, causing overcrowding. It is felt that non-imprisonment has not fulfilled the intended purpose of punishment. The emergence of the idea about non - imprisonment is expected to be an alternative form of criminal sanctions other than imprisonment. With various alternative forms of non-imprisonment, it is expected that imprisonment will no longer be the main crime and punishment in our country fulfil a sense of justice.
