The State News Agency Antara reports that the Bali police will deploy some 5,600 officers to ensure the peace over the Nyepi New Year celebrations for Tahun Baru Caka 1939 on March 28, 2017.

The head of the Bali police, Inspector General Petrus Golose, speaking while attending the Bali Interfood 2017 at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC) on Thursday, March 16, 2017, said that in addition to the 5,600 police employed to keep the peace a total of 22,000 volunteer pacalang community watch members would be deployed to ensure the rules and customs of Nyepi are enforced during the lead up to and actual marking the Balinese New Year.

Nyepi celebrations run from March 23-29, 2017, beginning with the ritual of Melasti – a ritual cleansing performed on beaches of other water sources and end one day after the official day of absolute silence on Nyepi (March 28th) with the Ngembal Geni ceremonies on March 29, 2017.

Police and pecalang will be on full alert on March 27, 2017, when the Tawur Agung parades of large Ogoh-Ogoh floats are paraded in almost every community in a night of drinking and revelry before the 24-hour period of silence.

The Bali police estimate that a total of 7,079 Ogoh-Ogoh will be displayed and paraded on Nyepi Eve.

On Nyepi Day – starting from sunrise on March 28th until sunrise the following day, Balinese Hindus and visitors are expected to observe “Catur Berata Penyepian” by abstaining from enterprise (Amati Karya), not traveling forth (Amati Lelungaan), not to indulge in pleasurable activities (Amati Lelanguan), and not to ignite any fire or source of light (Amati Geni).

On Nyepi Day Bali will come to a standstill, with only hospitals, police stations and fire services remaining open.
