(10/15/2005)

If a recent agreement reached at a meeting on Thursday, October 13, 2005, between representatives of Bali's provincial government, the armed forces, Bali's police and the island's Regents (Bupatis) comes to fruition, a Bali Security Council will soon be in operation charged with coordinating general security policies.

According to local press reports, the establishment of a Bali Security Council (BSC) was put forth by Bali's Police Chief Ir. Jen. Made Mangku Pastika who desires a broad involvement by local community elements in the proposed BSC, including local community security officers (pacalang). Quoted in the Indonesian-language Bali Post, Chief Pastika said the organization and operation of the BSC would be done by working groups who would devise security strategies, with the Police carrying out their decisions in the field.

More Security on Boarding Houses

Bali's top law enforcement officer also called for a more detailed approach to monitoring Bali's large urban population living in rented rooms and boarding houses. He called on the provincial government to introduce local regulations requiring more detailed documentation for Bali's city dwellers, including ID cards and photos for those renting apartments and rooms in Bali.

Honorary Police Officers

In addition to his proposal to establish the BSC, Chief Pastika has also proposed the appointment of honorary police officers comprised of key figures from various nationalities and ethic groups found on Bali. These unpaid "police officers' would be selected to their various nationalities or local ethnic grouping to operate as a liaison between the police and their respective communities.

Call for New Legislation

Bali's Police Chief used the occasion to underline the need for a more systematic appraoch to security in Bali. Among the steps proposed is the introduction of a regional law requiring security systems be installed in all hotels, restaurants, and public places.

Separately, Chief Pastika stated that the Bali Police need a minimum of Rp. 16.6 billion (approximately US$1.6 million) just to finance current police facilities and operations.

A Matter of Urgency

Baliís Vice-Governor has pledged to work hard to see the establishment of the Bali Security Council before November, promising to immediately bring the proposal of its establishment to the attention of Baliís Governor Dewa Made Beratha.
