Demographics are one of the important things that determine and influence the direction of legal policy in Indonesia, including the policy of tracing the digital footprints of perpetrators of criminal acts. The problem point is that population data in Indonesia is still scattered and managed by several agencies that are not connected digitally. The implication is that it is difficult to find valid data on the track record of the perpetrators of criminal acts. On that basis, this paper aims to identify the factors that cause population data problems and to describe the importance of digitizing population data integration as a manifestation of restorative justice in accelerating the settlement of criminal cases.
In this paper, a doctrinal approach is used to inventory legal policies related to efforts to complete population data that correlate with a person's crime. For this reason, latent content analysis is used to find the right legal solution to answer the relationship between data and the application of restorative justice in Indonesia.
Based on the results of the analysis it is known that the application of the principle of functional differentiation in law enforcement agencies in Indonesia is one of the factors in not recording population data related to criminal acts that have been committed by perpetrators of criminal acts. To avoid repetition of case settlements with restorative justice, it is necessary to carry out centralized and transparent data integration, namely the recording of the suspect's actions and their settlement based on the data listed on the e-KTP and or certain applications.
