Timika – Police officers stand guard after a series of actions by the armed criminal group (KKB) in Puncak Regency, Central Papua.
This was conveyed by the Head of Public Relations of the Papua Regional Police, Kombes Ignatius Benny Ady Prabowo, in Jayapura.
Kombes Benny said the implementation of Alert 1 was to provide a sense of security and comfort to the community.
“Alert 1 aims to anticipate follow-up actions, but it is important to provide a sense of security to the community,” he explained.
