Jayapura – The success of Bripda Karel Dadimo, a child from the Asmat tribe who won the title in a letter-writing competition for the National Police Chief on the occasion of the 76th Bhayangkara Day in 2022, is now an inspiring true story. His dream of becoming part of the Indonesian Police has been realized.
Attending an award ceremony at the Indonesian National Police Headquarters, Bripda Karel Dadimo, who is still in class XI IPS 1 at Yan Smith Catholic High School, Agats, Asmat Regency, Papua, met directly with the National Police Chief General Drs.

In his letter, Karel showed his desire to devote himself as a member of the National Police in his home area, Asmat Regency. And on Thursday 21 December 2023, the promise of the National Police Chief was realized. Karel Dadimu was officially inaugurated as a member of the National Police with the rank of Police Brigadier Two.
This big step is not only a personal achievement for Karel, but also a symbol of the Kapolri’s commitment to providing opportunities for regional children to work and serve the country.

“I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the Chief of Police, the National Police HR, the Papua Police Chief, the Deputy Chief of Police, the Head of the SPN, and the Head of Public Relations of the Papua Police for helping me realize my dream.
