Summary/Abstract: Exploring the social in a particular sequence requires often, complex investigations targeting both specialists in the field, and beneficiaries of services offered. In this sense, multidisciplinary approach is important not only as a modern trend, but plays a special role to promote alternatives to traditional services, seeking to improve service efficiency on the one hand, and their costs and benefits on the other. The criminal justice reform can not be conceived outside of this concept. This paper underlines this multidisciplinary dimension of criminal justice reform through a qualitative investigation, focus-group type, the main social actors in the scope of the law to promote alternative sanctions. From my professional experience in criminal matters, relevant specialists approach from the local community, in terms of the criminal justice system, was a relatively easy stage and led to some observations and comments from the current relevant level of the system development. Formation of effective networks of specialists and the promotion of a genuine public-private partnership seem to be issues without which reform the criminal justice system not find an efficient representation and implementation in local communities.
