Siti Prabawati, Elwi Danil, Aria Zurneti


State Detention House is the place where a suspect or defendant is detained during the investigation, prosecution, and examination process at the court hearing according toArticle 1 number 2 Government Regulation Number 58 of 2010 concerning Amendment to Government Regulation Number 27 of 1983 concerning the Implementation of the Criminal Procedure Code. However, the existence of prisoners, especially corruption in the Detention Center Padang Class IIB, is an inconsistency used as a place for guidance. Coaching through assimilation programs in the form of social work is a form of integration to the community. Assimilation of prisoners in the form of assimilation program is a difficult thing to do, especially in cases of criminal acts of corruption. This is because the crime of corruption is a crime that results in huge losses to the State. The regulations governing the application of assimilation are Law No. 12 of 1995 concerning Corrections, Government Regulation No.03 of 2018. Based on the above description, the following problems can be formulated first, How is the implementation of the assimilation program in the form of social work on corruption prisoners in the jurisdiction of Class IIB Prison in Padang. Second, what are the obstacles faced in the process of assimilation program in the form of social work towards corruption inmates in the Class IIB detention area in Padang. The research approach used in this study is empirical juridical. The results of these studies can be concluded that, Class IIB Padang Detention Center has implemented an assimilation program for corrupt prisoners in the form of social work, it's just that the program has not been implemented entirely in accordance with applicable law. Constraints experienced were the socialization of the rights and obligations of detainees and prisoners who were lacking, the absence of coaching budgets, the condition of overcapacity in Class IIB Detention Centers in Padang.
