The Bali Post reports that commercial villas in Bali's Gianyar regency will now be required to employ at least one security guard per decision issued during a meeting between hotel, villa and homestay owners with the Regional Security Council (MUSPIDA) held in Ubud on Monday, March 24, 2008.

The meeting was attended by Gianyar's Regent Tjok Ace, the Regency Police Chief Dedy Dhia Dharma, the Chief of Gianyar's tourist office Dewa Nyoman Alit Arinatha, Colonel Adrian Poto of the Gianyar military command, Ubud's Camat Dewa Suardana and numerous tourism accommodation operators

Data provided by Gianyar police shows that 120 commercial villas in the regency are operating without the assistance of security guards.

At the meeting, the Head of the Regency’s Tourism office, Dewa Alit Arinatha, admitted that there have been thefts, murders and crimes of fraud that have affected tourist visitors to Gianyar. According to Arinatha: "A sense of security and well-being is the basic need of every person. This is even more the case for tourist vacationing in Gianyar."

A Guard for Every Villa

The Chief of Police for Gianyar, Drs. Dedy Dharma, said the presence of security guards at every villa is now a requirement. This is needed to prevent crime.

Meanwhile, the Regent of Gianyar, Tjok Ace, called for coordinated action between the local community, business people and the government to create genuine safety in the area. In this regard, Tjok said the hoped all accommodation providers will acquire official safety and security certification which includes the employment of trained security guards.
