Don’t let there be a gap between the TNI and the Police because it will be a loss for all of us. The TNI Commander and I agree that if there is a problem, strict action must be taken so that it does not happen again. It is our TNI partner who must continue to work together to create a safe and comfortable Kamtibmas situation.” said Sigit.

I entrust this responsibility and I believe that my colleagues are capable of it,” said Sigit.
