Following the accidental explosion of an Indonesian Navy armory in Jakarta that left at least one dead an eighty-six injured, the Bali police have tightened procedures and security over weapons and munitions under their supervision.

The State News Agency Antara, quotes Bali’s chief of police, General Julius Benny Mokalu, saying, “We have rechecked storage facilities and our logistics.”

Bali’s number one policeman has issued instructions to the elite Police Mobile Brigade (Brimob) to tighten controls on ammunitions and weaponry kept under police storage in order to anticipate and prevent possible accidents. At the same time, General Mokalu has asked for public support in the effort to improve security.

The Commandant of the Bali Brimob in Bali, Police Commissioner Rudy Harianto said, “As regards procedures and operational standards, and security standards for munitions and weapon storage at Brimob, everything is in accordance with command directives.”

To offer an illustration of some of the standards now in place, the Bali police have a munitions storage measuring seven times eight meters located at the Brimob headquarters in Tohpati where ideal temperatures of between 22-25 degrees Centigrade are maintained, and smoke and fire detectors are in place.

The police said the Bali provincial police command is considered "ideal
in terms of its 1:200 ration of police to local citizens, with assistance in maintaining the peace also provided by special tourism police and the Gegana tactical response team charged with handling organized crime, terrorism, bombs, chemical and biological threats.
