Greater Jakarta Metropolitan Police has opened telephone hotlines for people who want to report crimes, in an attempt to curb increasing crime levels during the coronavirus pandemic.
“(Police set up a hotline) for the public who wants to report if there is information, experiences, and discovery of incidents related to the crimes that have occurred or they have faced,” said Director of General Criminal Investigation at the Greater Jakarta Metropolitan Police, Kombes Suyudi Ario Seto.
By introducing the service, he wants the public to help the police to tell them about the areas that are prone to crime. The hope is that concerns about personal safety will be alleviated.

Meanwhile, President Joko Widodo issued a policy regarding the prohibition of homecoming or mudik. Operation Ketupat Year 2020 was launched simultaneously on Friday 24th April 2020, focussing on forbidding the public from returning to their hometowns for Idul Fitr.
Kombes Pol Sambodo Purnomo Yogo of Greater Jakarta Metropolitan Police has revealed details of the operation, which will select vehicles that are coming in from Jadetabek when crossing the integrated security posts.
Sambodo said that there will be at least 19 integrated security posts. Three of them are on the toll roads. “Toll Cikarang, Cimanggis and Bitung,” said Sambodo, whilst 16 other integrated security posts are to be established in non-toll arterial lines.
Depok’s checkpoints will be on Jalan Raya Bogor-Cibinong and Citayam; Bekasi City will have checks at Sumber Arta, Bantargebang, and Cakung; Bekasi district will have four checks at Cibarada, Kedung warwant, Bojong Mangu, and Pebayuran; Tangerang City’s security posts will be at Lippo Karawaci, Batu Ceper, Ciledug, Kebon Nanas, and Jatiuwung; and South Tangerang will have checks at Puspitek and Curug.
Sambodo explained that every post will be filled by personnel from the National Armed Forces and police, as well as related agencies such as the Department of Transportation, to monitor the flow of vehicles.
The teams on hand will examine public and private vehicles transporting passengers. Transportation such as trucks, freight transport, or logistics will be allowed to pass unhindered.
The second part of the operation involves closing the Jakarta-Cikampek elevated toll road. The closure begins on Friday 24th April 2020 until seven days after the Idul Fitri day.
