Crime is a social phenomenon caused by normative deviations that are detrimental and cannot be tolerated. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the crime rate increased by 19.47% which was dominated by conventional crimes. The high crime rate that occurs can cause anxiety and concern in the community. Crime is a manifestation of antisocial behavior which refers to a series of actions outside the norms, rules, and laws that apply in social groups. Individuals with antisocial behavior exhibit impulsive, irritable, aggressive behavior, and are less able to accept social norms. This causes individuals to tend to commit violations continuously. Antisocial behavior usually begins to appear in early adolescence and will decrease in adulthood, especially in young adults. In its development, there are factors that cause individuals to tend to maintain their antisocial behavior, such as (a) economy (poverty and unemployment); (b) culture (juvenile delinquency, moral decadence, and promiscuity); (c) social problems (prostitution, crime, and gambling); and (d) a racist system. This research method uses descriptive quantitative and data is collected using a measuring instrument Subtype of Antisocial Behavior (STAB). Participants in this study consisted of 160 criminal offenders currently serving detention time in Jakarta and Tangerang Sectoral Police Station. The results showed that 44.2% had antisocial behavior in the high category. Participants who had a history of dropping out of school, motives, and individuals with a history of recidivism had higher antisocial behavior scores. Future research is expected to be able to examine participants based on a more specific type of crime.
