Key Police Stations in Bali Fortified Against Possible Terrorist Attacks

(9/14/2012) Sparked on by a terror attack targeted on Police in Solo, Central Java, and the discovery of a primitive bomb-making workshop in Depok, West Java, police in Bali have begun to stack sandbags around the perimeter of certain police stations in order to guard against any potential terrorist assault.

According to Beritabali.com, the police stations fortified with sand bag are those considered strategic by police, such as the police post located near the Ubung bus terminal.

Mobile brigade police offices (Brimob) wearing bulletproof body armor have been placed on 24-hour guard at these stations.

“We do not want to take a risk. Bali has twice become a target for terrorism and we do not want to be caught unprepared again,” said the spokesman for the Bali police Hariadi.

Hariadi explained that following the recent terrorist incidents in Java, the Bali police tightened security at it airport and seaports. He also confirmed that police are increasing the number of roadblocks to check passing vehicles and motorists.
