62 mobile patrol units of the Bali Police have been equipped with Global Positioning systems (GPS) in an effort to help standardize the public service provided by the police and shorten the targeted response-time to an emergency situation to only 15 minutes.

During the launch of the GPS System by Bali's Chief of Police, Inspector General Teuku Ashikin Husein, the island's top law enforcement officer said that as soon as an incident report is made over the telephone by dialing "112" the nearest patrol car will be dispatched to the scene.

The Police Chief also revealed that in order to increase the mobility of Bali's police, the allocation of fuel for each patrol car has been increased from 10 to 20 liters every day.

The 62 GPS-equipped cars will be assigned to patrol areas in Denpasar, Tabanan, Gianyar and Badung.

'Quick Win' Program

In an effort to improve the overall image of the police, four 'quick win' changes in police operations have been announced in the following areas :

ē The manner in which reports received from the public are handled.

ē Transparency in the investigative process.

ē The manner in which driver's licenses, car registrations, and car titles (SIM, STNK & BPKP) are processed.

ē Transparency in the way in which police officers are recruited.

Explained Chief Ashikin: "These four programs will directly affect the public interest. The goal is to speed and improve public service in every way possible."

Citing the services offered by the traffic police, Chief Ashikin said the process for obtaining a SIM, STNK or BPKB is becoming increasingly transparent. According to Ashikin, every person seeking a driver's license must now meet all the stipulated requirements. Thus, if an applicant fails a practical test or theoretical test they will not be able to obtain a driver's licenses until these tests are successfully completed.
