(11/29/2009)

In a meeting on Wednesday, November 25, 2009, between the Bali Villa Association (BVA) and Bali's Chief of Police, General Sutisna, the BVA reported that of the 750 villa operating commercially in Badung regency, only 500 are in possession of formal registration.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the meeting held at the office of the Police Chief also discussed the deteriorating traffic condition in Bali and increasing levels of crime against foreign nationals.

Ismoyo, the Chairman of the BVA, said the existence of 250 unregistered commercial villas in Badung regency manifests a number of problems, chief among which is the uneven level of security in place at villas. He called on the police to introduce a standardization of security practice for villas in Bali, particularly in the areas of staffing, training and equipment. Explained Ismoyo: "In a number of villas there are no satpam (uniformed security). When, in fact, the presence of satpam is very necessary to keep the area surrounding a villa safe."

In their meeting with the police, BVA asked that the standardization in security practice in place for Bali's hotels also be extended to the island's villas and restaurants. At the same time, the BVA has called on the police to pay more attention to villa security in the future.

Because many villas in Bali are owned by foreigners, efforts to improve security for this segment demand better security be put in place at villas.

”I have seen the property of foreigners snatched away while they are sitting in a restaurant. The owner of the restaurant do not want to accept responsibility when this happens," said Dewi Mas Bloem, Assistant Manager of The Haven.

The problem of traffic accidents in tourist areas was also tabled at the meeting between the BVA and the Bali police. The tragic road accidents happening in Bali is oftentimes connected with the imprudence of foreign tourists who become intoxicated and drive motorcycles while in Bali. Radu Fentiu the General Manager of the Bali Mandira complained to the police: "The problem is created by the foreign visitors themselves. They don't wear helmets; don't wear shirts and smell of alcohol. They drive motorcycles in a reckless manner resulting accidents and death. In their own country they would be punished (for their behavior)."

The delegation also questioned the deployment of police in the Petitenget area. Tourist have complained that police from the Kuta precinct do not respond to cases in Seminyak, due to the distance from their precinct office. The BVA members ask the police to assign officers at the Petitienget post

Police Chief Sutisna promised said he would respond the to the information provided him during the meeting, emphasizing that good security in the community requires strong cooperation between the police and Bali’s tourism operators.

General Sutisna said how his office had long complained that many villas do not employ satpam, leaving unprotected villas vulnerable to crime. He reminded villa owners investing in Bali that part of that investment must also include an investment in security.
