(5/23/2014)

The Jakarta Post reports that the Bali Police Chief, General Albertus Julius Benny Mokalu, has responded to complaints over mounting crime in Bali by pledging to heightened security, more patrols and the monitoring of recidivists living on Bali.

Said General Mokalu: “We have optimized all efforts to prevent crimes. We conduct routine operations; we have priority targets, by for example monitoring recidivists. Based on criminology, perpetrators tend to repeat crimes.”

In recent days, expatriates in Bali have organized themselves demanding a stronger police response to violent crime, largely perpetrated against women.

Various Facebook pages campaigning for a safer Bali have been launched together with peace and order vigils to demanding greater safety in the community.

In less than a single week Bali has been rocked by the death of an 18-year-old South Korean Woman in Denpasar who died during a purse snatching and the death of a U.K. Resident in her rented villa in Ubud.

The Bali Chief of Police insists his officers are working hard to solve crime but said community support is needed to make Bali a safer place to live.

Adding that crime can never be completely eradicated, General Benny said: “In any area or province, crime can never reach zero. It is impossible. Because of population growth, economic growth, social circumstances and many other things, of course, crimes will occur.”
