Bali chief of police, General Hadiatmoko, has issued orders to "shoot on site" whenever his sea-borne officers on patrol encounter ships carrying explosive materials or firearms.

As reported in beritabali.com, Bali's top cop issued the order on Tuesday, October 5, 2010, at the launching of a new "Punai" patrol boat to be used by Bali's Water Police in policing the waters surrounding Bali. The 36-meter-long patrol vessel can carry 23 crew and travel at 12 knots will be deployed in Bali for two months.

In describing the two month tour-of-duty for the boat in Bali, General Hadiatmoko said the ship will scrutinize Bali's water accesses, including Bali's large and small ports that can be used by criminals.

The police general said the "Punai" patrol vessel will ensure Bali's safety by deterring those trying to bring weapons or explosives into the island The main patrol areas covered by the sea patrols will sail the waters adjacent to many Bali hotels and villas such as Sanur, Serangan, Tanjung Benoa, Nusa Dua, Uluwatu, Jimbaran, Kuta and Legian. Perhaps conscious of the modus operandi used by terrorists in Mumbai, India, Hadiatmoko has told his officers to shoot on site (tembak di tempat) whenever they discover a ship carrying explosives and firearms.

In issuing the order to shoot, the Chief of Police emphasized that there are no indications that terrorists were entering Bali. In anticipation of possible terrorist infiltrations, police are introducing the sea patrols and have positioned a large number of CCTV surveillance cameras in key locations across Bali.
