"We have prepared various measures from security, infrastructure, defense, transportation, fuel and intelligence," said Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, (Menkopolhukam) Mahfud MD, Jakarta on Friday, December 13, 2019.
Related agencies held the 2019 Cross Sectoral Coordination Meeting at the STIK-PTIK Auditorium today. The National Police (Polri) and the Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI), and related ministries agreed to strengthen coordination in order to ensure safe and smooth year-end holiday season.
Mahfud said the security forces had mapped the prone areas during the Christmas of 2019 and the 2020 New Year holidays. The government would add security personnel to prevent disruptions.
"It will work if all the people help," Mahfud said.
The National Police will carry out the Candle Operation from December 23, 2019 to January 1, 2020. As many as 100,000 more personnel will be deployed across Indonesia from Aceh to Merauke.
