Jakarta – Forest and land fires (karhutla) have so far become a classic case that seems endless. Indonesia even had complaints from neighboring countries, namely Singapore and Malaysia, which were disturbed by smoke pollution due to forest and land fires.
The government is now trying a new strategy in tackling forest and land fires, namely by using the National Digital Control Analysis System (ASAP) Application. This application is useful for accelerating the response to forest and land fires.
The National Digital Control Analysis System (ASAP) application was officially launched by the National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo.
Sigit stated that the ASAP application will also facilitate the investigation and investigation system of the perpetrators of forest fires. It is hoped that this will add a deterrent effect to the perpetrators.
“Of course, with this application we can also take several further steps to carry out investigations and investigations on the perpetrators caught by this application so that we can proceed further,” said Sigit quoting Legal, Wednesday (15/9/2021).
Sigit also hopes that with this application, he can be aware of and witness quickly or in real time the hotspots. So that prevention and treatment can be directly carried out by officers, to immediately carry out the fire.
“We immediately forwarded it to the closest members who after that could make quick movements to stop at that point to carry out the blackout,” said the former Police Criminal Investigation Officer.
Sigit further explained that the National Digital ASAP application will be integrated with the application for handling forest and land fires, which are owned by Ministries/Agencies (K/L), BUMN and the Regional Police. So, said Sigit, the matter is able to accelerate the prevention and handling of forest and land fires.
“Where indeed this application combines all the potential that exists in the ministry, in BUMN for us to unite it into a monitoring process in the context of preventing and controlling forest and land fires more quickly,” said Sigit.
