(12/6/2009)

Four Police precincts or Polseks in Denpasar will soon be upgraded into metropolitan police centers. The four precincts in Denpasar due for the upgrade are West Denpasar (Denpasar Barat), East Denpasar (Denpasar Timur), South Denpasar (Denpasar Selatan) and Kuta.

The Chief Officer at each of these station houses will no longer be held by an officer with the rank of Ajun Komisaris Polisi (equivalent to a Captain), but be under the control of a higher ranking Ajun Komisaris Besar Polisi - AKBP (equivalent to a Lieutenant Colonel).

As reported by Kompas.com, the Chief of the Denpasar Police, Komisaris Besar I Gede Alit Widiana, told the press the changes were in accordance with the recent validation and evaluation made by national police headquarters. "The status change to create precinct metropolitan stations has not only affected several precincts in Bali, but has also taken place at police posts across Indonesia," Widiana explained.

Widiana also said he hoped the upgraded status for these police precincts would improve service to the public and enhance the law enforcement capabilities of the officers serving in those locations.

The number of personnel serving in these offices will be increased to a minimum of 300, so there will be no basis for anyone feeling there's a lack of manpower or similar such complaints," Widiana said.

The higher mobility of a larger deployment in each of these precinct stations is also hoped to reduce the possibility of social unrest in any surrounding area.

Widiana shared with the press his dream of turning the Kuta Precinct into a "Zero Crime" model neighborhood. While admitting many express skepticism as to whether or not Kuta cam be made crime free, Widiana pledged his every energy in a joint effort with the local community to make that dream into a reality.

Widiana continued: "Bali is like a sugar mountain to a troop of ants. There are those who come her with skills and others who come with no skill at all. Those without skills end up doing many things to meet their basic requirements, including criminal acts."

The police have set an initial target of giving a quick response to every report they receive as a means of enhancing the public trust for the police. From 2010 to 2015 they will create stronger working relationships with the public by involving the public in every aspect of police work. "The public must not always become the "object" but must also become the "subject" or "operator" in every effort to create security in their communities," insisted Widiana.
