Tempo - July 21, 2018

Andita Rahma, Jakarta – The National Police Chief Gen. Tito Karnavian suggested creating regulation on law enforcer protection. It was conveyed during a collaborative meeting with the Law Commission of the House of Representative (DPR).

According to the police chief, the regulation was vital to oversee the rights and protection of law enforcers so there would be guards for law enforcer who bear the risk while on duty.

"Heavier punishment for those using violence against law enforcers on duty," said Tito Karnavian in the DPR building, South Jakarta, July 19.

Aside from that, Tito demanded a special prison for law enforcers as it would be dangerous for convicts and law enforcers to stay in the same cells.

"[Law enforcer] can be a target of revenge. Such cases have already happened," said Tito Karnavian, hoping the idea would be soon actualized. "Let's discuss the draft of this special law together," he added.
