Jakarta – On May 6, 2021, exactly 100 days of the journey of General Listyo Sigit Prabowo’s leadership in the police. Responding to this momentum, the Central GMKI through its General Chair, Jefri Gultom, argued that we cannot judge a person’s leadership performance with only the first 100 days, due to the wide geographic coverage area with varying complexity of problems, especially with the pandemic situation like now.
Jefri Gultom also said that many policies and breakthroughs within the National Police had not yet been fully realized due to the consideration of the Covid-19 crisis. However, the high hopes of the community from time to time remain the same, how the presence of the National Police provides legal certainty for all members of the community. This is because the law has been blunt upward and sharp downward.
However, GMKI appreciates and appreciates the efforts and initiatives of the National Police to innovate public policy during the three months of General Listyo Sigit Prabowo’s tenure.
So far, GMKI notes, the Head of Police’s breakthrough is the Virtual Police to improve service and performance through the digital ecosystem to the application of public surveillance of the police. So, in this case the sector police do not take care of criminal cases, encouraging the concept of dialogue through a cultural approach for Polsek to ensure public safety and order together with the opening of reading parks for the community in related Polsek.

fact, according to GMKI, he was able to build closeness with all elements of society across groups, religions, ethnicities and races. However, Jefri Gultom views that the most important thing when public policy innovation uses a digital ecosystem is that public communication management, both internally and externally, must be properly integrated.
Because the digital era, which is also known as the Post-Truth era, provides an opportunity for people to get caught up in hoaxes and fake news. This is a sign that the National Police institution not only innovates its policies but also approaches patterns and public communication through strengthening digital literacy and disseminating policies to make it right on target.
So that his goal is to make Polri a predictive, responsible and transparent institution or Polri Presisi can guarantee trust and hope for justice for all. In addition, we also appreciate the steps taken by the National Police Chief for being responsive to disaster events by increasing the synergy and solidity of the TNI-Polri, as well as collaborating with ministries / agencies to support and oversee government programs.
We cannot judge a person’s leadership performance by only the first 100 days, due to the wide geographic area coverage with the complexity of the problem also varies.

At the momentum of 100 days, we convey seven reminders and hopes for General Listyo Sigit Prabowo and the police extended family to carry out their historical duties and responsibilities well in the future.
First, the handling of Covid-19 has become a pretext for arbitrary arrests and dispersal of mass actions that are still taking place in several areas.
Second, the integration of an integrated service system that still has the old method, namely illegal levies, especially at the middle and lower levels.
Third, the problem of terrorism and the challenge of national disintegration. We hope that the Police will take a humanist approach in the prevention process, not only relying on prosecution.
This means that deradicalization and dissemination of national insight must prioritize a local culture-based approach by inviting people to get involved and participate in strengthening understanding of Pancasila. This means that intensive cooperation and collaboration with organizations, NGOs, religious institutions and national figures is needed to overcome this threat.
Fourth, the National Police must guarantee its independence in handling various special cases for active Polri members who are currently serving in other institutions outside the National Police.
Fifth, human rights cases which from year to year still have negative reactions from victims and human rights activists, including NGOs, which lack transparency in their handling. For example, the FPI Laskar case resulted in a lot of protests.
Sixth, specifically for the human rights case in Papua, it is hoped that the Police will be more sensitive and respectful of the cultural approach of the Papuan people. The pattern of communication and integration between Polri policies as a manifestation of the presence of the state with a cultural approach as the foundation for dialogue to make it more intensive so that a common ground for resolving Papuan problems can be realized as soon as possible.
For the sixth point, it is very important this year because it coincides with the issue of Special Autonomy. It is in this context that the National Police is required to be more proactive in conducting dialogue.
Seventh, the National Police Chief must be more responsive to the President’s instructions regarding the Land Mafia. Considering that the land mafia cases have been piling up for a long time from year to year, even the National Police Chief takes turns but the land mafia remains in line with no clarity in its resolution.
With that, there is great hope that the concept of the National Police Chief, which will make the Police a predictive, responsible, and justly transparent institution or “ PRESISI POLRI ”, must become a new work ethic or habit for the performance of Polri members.
