And several other surveys from Charta Politica and Populi Center which put the police as the number 3 most trusted agency and the first rank of law enforcement agencies. This is all the result of the hard work of all members and the support of seniors who provide input to improve, we cannot be in our comfort zone or we are left behind,” said Sigit.
