The efforts to criminalize corruption committed by Polri, Attorney and Criminal Commission of Corruption institutions have been intensified, but state officials, especially regional heads, namely; Governor / Vice Governor, Regent / Deputy Regent, Mayor / Deputy Mayor, Member of Board of Representative People House of both central and regional and other state officials are also not deterred by the actions of law enforcement officers. This condition has led to a gap between the prosecution and prevention with acts of corruption that occurred, that the impact of criminal acts and the prevention of corruption is not directly proportional to the data of the criminal acts of corruption that occurred. Supposedly, the more action and prevention activities undertaken, the criminal acts of corruption will decrease, but empirically the situation in the field is the opposite.
To combat this increasingly massive corruption, it is necessary to make other efforts to create an anti-corruption society. The strategic step that must be done by the government is to make intensive prevention efforts, through legal community education in realizing anti-corruption culture in Indonesia. Intensive prevention is done by establishing commission on prevention of criminal acts of corruption, which carries a special task in the field of prevention of corruption crime.
The problems that have been hypothesized in this study have been tested by the researchers and resulted in the conclusion that officials given socialization of knowledge about the prevention of criminal acts of corruption tend not to do corruption, compared to officials who do not follow socialization; There is a positive influence of socialization activities conducted on the decrease of corruption.
