Within the context of a general rotation of assignment affecting 21 senior police officers nation-wide, Bali's Chief of Police, Inspector General Paulus Purwoko has been reassigned to become the Deputy-Chief of the National Criminal Investigation Unit (Wakabereskrim) at the National Police Headquarters in Jakarta (Mabes Polri). General Purwoko has held the post of Bali Police Chief since October 2006.
Replacing Purwoko as Bali's top cop is Inspector General T. Ashikin Husein whose last posting was as the Governor of the National Police Academy.
Chief Purwoko's near two-year reign as the Head of the Bali Police Force was marked by an intense drive to improve security standards among local tourism operators, viewing a reputation for safety and security as central to preserving Bali's tourism fortunes.
While not denying the change of command in Bali, the spokesman for the Bali police could not confirm the actual date for the change of command which is expected to be completed within the coming few weeks.
