As part of his election campaign, Bali's governor Made Mangku Pastika has promised the installation of 1,000 closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV) across the island during his first five year term. On the way to that goal, the provincial government of Bali will soon install 39 CCTV at ports of entry and tourism centers over the coming months.

The Bali Chief of the Agency for Unified Politics and the Peoples Protection (Kesbangol Linmas), Made Denayasa, confirmed the Governor's plan for 1,000 CCTV to be installed within 5 years. Describing the installation of the initial 39 units, Denayasa explained: "We will create an 'emergency response service (ERS)' that can quickly answer any critical situation threatening safety and security. The three components that comprise this service are police patrols, the ambulance service and the fire department.”

The estimated cost of the Emergency Response Service” is Rp 16 billion (US$1.42 million).

Governor Pastika told Bisnis Bali the problem of security is not the exclusive responsibility of police and security services, but must also be shared with the general public. As an international tourism destination, said Pastika, Bali must also have a security system of international standard that can form a central theme of the Island's promotion.

Explained Pastika, "when we promote (tourism) abroad, Bali's security system must also be promoted so international visitors are not reluctant to visit."

To create a fully functioning security system for Bali, in addition to an ESR the island will also soon have a crisis center made possible with funds provided by the French Red Cross. Ground was broken for the new Crisis Center on November 12, 2008 in Renon and is scheduled to be in operation on August 14, 2009.
