The purpose of this research is to highlight the public perception on the non-custodial punishments, and thei implementation through means of probation services. The research was achieved using sociological inquiry based on survey, conducted on a sample of over 1056 respondents from the N.-E. area of Romania, and 432 from the Republic of Moldova. From the answers received, we can outline a model of humanistic-utilitarian probation, with retributive accents. The hypothesis reffering to the existence of a strong retributive trend in the Romanian society only partially checks. The respondents have shown that the non-custodial punishments can be understood as being more efficient for the social reintegration of the offenders, than the carceral ones. The hypothesis according to which the activity of the probation services is less known in the two societies, which may lead to a lower degree of acceptance of the non-custodial punishments, is only partially sustained.
