Regarding the types of society's response to criminality, legal theory recognizes some of them: expulsion, vengeance - blood feud, indemnity, retaliation - intimidation, humanism, and individualism. By evolving ways of society's response to criminality, the methods and tools that have influenced the improvement and advancement of countering criminality have changed. The need for reforming the system of execution of imprisonment has always been evident and the same has emerged in the demand of idea makers and rulers, but also in practical penitentiary experience. In particular, it was required that the main purpose of the sentence was to improve, re-socialize and prepare prisoners for life in freedom. The principle of individualization of the sentence has led to the need to classify and categorize the institutions for the execution of punishment As a criminal sanction, the punishment of imprisonment is a type of punishment which can be enforced in state institutions in a manner regulated by law and in no other way. The notion re-socialization and re-adapting did not yield the expected results. Alternative measures were imposed and found their place in the penal sanction system due to these two reasons: a) The notion of humanizing human relations between people makes the economic, social, political and civilization of contemporary society and b) the intention to build a justice system based on the principle of the rule of law and law that enable human rights and freedoms to be realized on the basis of principles of equality and non-discrimination on any basis.
