As a step to reduce criminality in Bali’s capital of Denpasar, the head of the chief of the south Denpasar police precinct (Kapolsek Densel), Police Commissioner Adjutant Leo Martin Pasaribu, has established Nine “strong points” or temporary police posts in areas identified with strong potential for crime.

In addition, a separate observation-coordination point manned by uniformed officers has also been established at the busy Dewa Ruci Monument at the Simpang Siur intersection in Kuta,

Leo explained that of the 10 posts now in operation, nine are “strong points,” with three of which are for the use ofBali's tourism police. The remaining post plays a coordinating and observation role.

He said that each post will be manned by several police officers. Those assigned to the new posts will be selected from the criminal division, intelligence personnel, traffic police, armed brigade and public order officers depending on the crime profile of the respective location of each locale.

“There are some points with 8 until 10 officers, depending on the crime rate of each area. The post were set up a month ago,” Pasaribu explained to the press.

Pasaribu claims the new posts have proven their effectiveness in reducing crime over their first month of operation. He says each post has reduced the number of reports generated from their areas from 8-10 each day to only 2-3. He also claims crime has been reduced in the subject areas by 80% since the establishment of the police posts.
