(5/19/2013)

Due to the increase in robberies and burglaries at villas in North Kuta, Seminyak and Canggu - Bali’s Chief of Police General Arif Wachyunadi has assigned 50 members of the police’s elite mobile brigade (brimob) to the affected areas in an effort to reduce crime.

According to DenPost, the spokesman for the Bali Police, Hariadi, confirmed on May 9, 2013, the deployment of specially trained police to North Kuta, now designated as a “safe zone” by the police.

An unnamed source told DenPost that joint forces from the Badung Police Precinct and the Crime Division of the Bali Police are now “working hard” to investigate the unsolved robberies and burglaries of villas in North Bali.

Suspected hiding places of known criminal elements are being systematically raided across the Badung regency and Denpasar and a large number of criminals have been taken into custody.

The 50 members of the elite mobile brigade have been assigned to areas considered sensitive for crime and at key intersections in North Kuta.

Meanwhile, Police say the scant security measures put in place at many villas by their owners are partly to blame for recent increase in criminality. Many villas stand alone and separated in rice fields, located at a distance from the more populous and secure residential areas.

Both the police and the governor have in the past urged the installation of CCTV cameras, higher walls and additional security staff. Unfortunately, in many cases owners, more intent on preserving views than building tall fortifications, have ignored these recommendations
