Jokowi Celebrates Eid in Jakarta, Police Secure Takbiran Night

TEMPO.CODepok - Jakarta Police (Polda Metro Jaya) has prepared 16,000 personnel to secure Eid takbir (chanting the God is great) night, locally known as takbiran. Jakarta Police chief Ins. Gen. Muhamad Iriawan said that the police have set up security posts for takbiran night.

"We have taken security measures, especially this year, since President Jokowi (Joko Widodo) plans to have his Eid prayer in Istiqlal," Iriawan said on Friday, June 23. "He usually has his Eid al-Fitr prayer outside of Jakarta," Iriawan explained.

In addition, Iriawan said, Jakarta Police also secure and regulate homecoming routes. He went on by saying that the homecoming route this year is better since it is well prepared.

"Pantura route is dominated by motorcycles, it is thick yet constantly moving," Iriawan added.

Iriawan said that the police anticipated traffic by working together with state-owned toll road operator Jasa Marga to distribute toll tickets.

"For homecoming transportation flow, everything runs well since we have carefully planned everything. In fact, we have deployed several teams including traffic police to ease congestion (TPK, Tim Pengurai Kemacetan)," Iriawan added.
