The article examines certain legal and organizational problems in the field
of the execution of sentences and other measures of a criminal-legal without isolation of a
convict from society, presents the results of a survey of employees of penal inspectorates of
territorial bodies of the Federal Penal Service and outlines ways to solve existing problems.
The study showed that the formation of a system for the execution of sentences without
the isolation of a convicted person from society has not yet been completed. Improvement of
criminal and penal legislation is required, a clearer legal regulation of the legal responsibility
of convicts, further expansion of the range of powers and functions of penal inspectorates,
overcoming difficulties in the organizational, personnel, financial and information support of
their activities. The article points to the execution of a number of functions unusual for them
by the penal inspectorates, the lack of legal regulation of the execution of certain preventive
measures and measures of a criminal-legal nature, the procedure for determining the list
of objects for convicts to serve sentences in the form of correctional labor and compulsory
labor as well as the procedure ensuring the attendance of convicts at the hearing. The
legislation does not provide for the initial measures to establish the whereabouts of convicts
to punishment in the form of deprivation of the right to occupy certain positions or engage
in certain activities, the issue of appealing directly by employees of penal inspectorates of
court decisions on representations against convicts is not regulated.
