(2/8/2013)

In the period leading up to the Asian-Pacific Economic Conference (APEC) in September 2013 the Bali police will be sweeping all the small ports and shoreline landing spots with the potential of being used by criminal or terrorist elements.

According to Seputarbali.com, among the locations being put under scrutiny by police are Kampung Bugis at Serangan, Gerokgak, Banjar, Celukanbawang and a number of other locations.

The chief of the Bali police, General Arif Wachyunadi, said, “We have socialized to the public at several critical points and informal landing port, known as ‘rat ports’ in order that the public can become their own policemen for their families and the surrounding communities.”

The police chief called on all elements of the public, especially those living on Bali’s shores, to help surveil and safeguard Bali’s peace and security.

General Wachyunadi also saluted the people of the Bugis community on Serangan Island who assured Bali’s number one cop they knew each and every member of their neighborhood. Adding: “Three thousand or more people live there. And the all admit that they know each other. So, if a outsider of uncertain identity visits they will be detained and questioned by community members.”

Warning that Bali’s informal ports are very vulnerable to misuse, he the police general said he hoped Bali’s residents will report any unusual situations to the authorities.

Bali’s recently installed chief of police promised he will personally inspect all locations involved in the coming APEC conference, including the Ngurah Rai Airport, Nusa Dua and other locations. He said all hotels in Nusa Dua will be audited, especially The Westin, Hotel Mulia and several other venues used for the conference.

“We hope that all these areas used by the conference have security plans and blueprints that can be quickly reviewed. For instance, if there is a security need in hotel room number 7, those charged with security must already know where room number seven is located and get there quickly.”
