The article is devoted to the issues of operational service by the operational units of the Federal Penitentiary Service of correctional centers that carry out forced labor as a type of punishment. The article analyzes the current legislation. Forced labor is used as an alternative to imprisonment in cases stipulated by the relevant articles of the Special Part of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, for the commission of a crime of small or medium gravity, or for the commission of a serious crime for the first time. Also, forced labor can be replaced by the actual serving of a sentence in places of deprivation of liberty for crimes of small and medium gravity, grave and especially grave crimes. At the same time, in contrast to the consideration by the courts of the possibility of granting parole to convicts, there are no special restrictions on the types of crimes for forced labor, for example, those related to terrorism, drug trafficking, etc. Convicts transferred to correctional centers may commit latent crimes and, in our opinion, need prompt service. The purpose of the article is to draw the attention of stakeholders to the problem of the absence of operative staff positions in the staff of correctional centers. To solve the question posed, the article contains proposals for amending the current legislation of the Russian Federation.
