The Bali Police will involve pecalang or neighbor watch groups in order to anticipate the possibility that terrorist elements recently escaped from the Tanjung Gusta Prison in North Sumatra might infiltrate Bali over the Idul Fitri holidays.

The State News Agency Antara quotes the Bali Chief of Police, General Arif Wachyunadi, who said: “I have already provided guidance to Agency for Creating Public Order and Security (Babinkamtibmas), Village Development Constables (Babinsa) and pacalang to be aware of the possibility that terrorist might enter Bali.”
The Bali Chief of Police views the involvement of pacalang and members of Bali’s traditional villages in maintaining the peace as important, offering preventative security penetration to the community level. For this reason, pacalang will be synergized with officers from the police and armed forces in every village.
Bali has a total of 1,480 traditional villages, each with its own established detachment of pacalang.
The total number of Babinkamtibmas officer in Bali is around 736, who together with Babinsa and pecalang will be able to provide input to every community to enhance the level of scrutiny and allow any suspicious information to be quickly relayed to the police.
The police are also deploying Special Forces at Bali’s main air and sea gateways. Trained snipers are also standing by 24-hours of every day for rapid deployment, as required.
