Abstract: First paragraph: This chapter presents findings based on the theme of the book titled "The Global Challenges for Improving Public Services and Government Operations". This study is essential to an academic and a non-academic audience, for example, the public services system working in drug sentencing, and the Policymaker. The demonstration of the judicial awareness of the issues surrounding justice and public acceptance led to the situation where they were attempting to present a balance between pursuing justice and public service to achieve broader social justice. Therefore, this chapter contributes to knowledge and deals with issues with immediate, tangible benefits to broader society. The study presented in this chapter explores judicial perspectives on sentencing minor drug offenders in Indonesia. The author conducted a qualitative study which involved interviews with participants who were District Court Judges and observation in two selected courts. This chapter presents an introduction to the research question, context to the study, the theoretical framework, the contribution to knowledge, and the layout of this chapter. The organisation of the study as follows. First, it sets out the previous study on the relationship between bureaucratic culture factors when sentencing. Second, it sets out a useful tool for interpreting how Judges tried to adjust the form of a sentence that meets public expectation. Third, it looks at several strategies to identify relevant studies in the literature. Fourth, it presents a specific reference to sentencing based on moral responsibility and exercising judicial discretion. Finally, it provides recommendations and future research directions for improving public services and government operations.
