    TEMPO.CO, JakartaJakarta Metro Police are currently preparing security measures for three agendas during this year’s end, namely Christmas, New Year, and demonstration on the anti-corruption day and international human rights day.

    Police deputy chief Brig. Gen. Wahyu Hadiningrat said the anti-corruption day which falls on December 9 and the international human rights day on December 10 will likely be packed with mass rallies.

    “Therefore, I order resort police and officers to conduct meetings and coordinate with community groups, and anticipate possible mass mobilization,” said Wahyu when leading the ceremony at Jakarta Police HQ, South Jakarta, Wednesday, December 4.

    As for the security system during the rallies, Wahyu mentioned that his side will apply similar protection measures carried out during the PA 212 reunion as it was lauded by National Police Chief Gen. Idham Azis.

    “The success in securing the 212 reunion event is not only about the implementation, but also the process until the D-day,” Wahyu added.

    Additionally, Wahyu instructed his staffers to immediately set the protection plan during Christmas and New Year holidays, including the number of personnel, budget, and equipment.
