The Head of the Public Information Office (Karopenmas) of the National Police Public Relations Division, Brigadier General Rusdi Hartono, responded to the emergence of the hashtag #PercumaAdaPolisi which was used as an assessment material on Twitter to further improve the implementation of police stations.
The hashtag #PercumaAdaPolisi is booming on Twitter, triggered by the case of a Pulogadung police officer who was rude to residents who came to report their crimes.
“So this is the contribution of the Police to improve according to community expectations and all cases in Pulogadung have been handled,” said Rusdi at the National Police Headquarters, South Jakarta, Tuesday (14/1/2021). . .
Rusdi said that his party continues to follow the development of the narrative that develops on social networks related to the institution, starting with the hashtag #PercumaLaporPolisi and now the reappearance of #PercumaAdaPolisi.
“The police if there is a hashtag, whatever it is, everyone will be very careful and judge everything with a cool and wise head,” said Rusdi.
Rusdi views the narrative that has developed on social networks as a form of public expression and honesty towards the National Police institution for the better.
“We think this is an honest expression of the community towards the police who are loved by the community, so this is a contribution for the police to be even better,” said Rusdi.
Regarding the handling of the Pulogadung case, Rusdi said there was no negligence in the Polri organization: members who did their job well would be rewarded, while those who violated would be punished.
“This can be a commitment of the National Police to really ensure that the tasks carried out by members are in accordance with the character and expectations of the community,” explained Rusdi.
Meanwhile, with sanctions against members of the Pulogadung Police Station who did not carry out their duties properly, Rusdi said the police had taken action against him.
The sentence imposed is sufficient for violations committed by members of the State Police.
“There are already provisions if there are members who violate discipline because there are already sanctions that will be imposed. If it violates ethics, you can give it all, there are already rules that regulate it, the principle is clear that in the National Police there is no omission,” said Rusdi.
