Child Protection, Criminal Supervision, Restive Justice



Abstract. Children are an inseparable part of both human and nation and state survival. Children need to get the widest possible opportunity to grow and develop optimally both physically, mentally and socially. The Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia has regulated and guaranteed the welfare of each of its citizens, including the protection of children's rights which are Human Rights as stated in Law Number 35 of 2014 concerning Amendments to Law Number 23 of 2002 concerning Child Protection. The law states that every child has the right to survival, growth and development as well as protection from violence as well as discrimination as mandated in the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia. Referring to Law Number 23 of 2002 concerning Child Protection Article 1 Paragraph (1), a child is someone who is not yet eighteen years old, included in the womb. Criminal supervision for children is a special punishment imposed on children, namely supervision carried out by the public prosecutor over the child's behavior in daily life at the child's home and providing guidance carried out by social counselors. The purpose of scanning expressly says that punishment is not just to retaliate or repay people who have committed a crime but has certain useful purposes and retaliation is only a means to protect the interests of society. Restorative Justice is a victim-centered reaction to crime that allows victims, perpetrators, families and communities to pay attention to losses due to criminal acts. Restitution emphasizes the restoration of material or physical and psychological losses to victims of child crime. In imposing criminal offenses on children, it is necessary to emphasize the conditions for criminal supervision in the application of restorative justice so that juvenile crimes that cause loss and suffering to victims can  apply fair and good child protection without having to deprive the child of independence.
