The National News Agency Antara reports that ten members of Rotary Club Canggu presented a plaque declaring appreciation to the Bali Police for their service in making the Island safe.
Patricia Jamieson a Canggu Rotarian from Ireland, said: “Six policemen from Badung recently were successful arresting two thieves and sending them to jail. So we have give then an award as a sign of appreciation.”
The plaque was received directly by Bali’s Chief of Police, Inspector General Arif Wachyunadi, during ceremonies marking the 67th anniversary of the Indonesian Police Force.
While crimes committed against foreign visitors is only one part of criminality in Bali, the police have taken stern action to instill foreigner’s confidence in the security situation.
Despite reports of recent criminal acts, most tourists feel relatively safe in Bali. An expatriate resident who has lived in Bali for 12 years told Antara: “I have heard of several criminal cases in Canggu, but generally I feel safer in Bali than I do in other courtiers in which I have lived."
Bali’s police chief expressed his thanks for the award given to him and his Bali forces by Rotary. At the same, he pledged to safeguard Bali from criminality in keeping with its role as a leading international tourism destination.
