JAKARTADAILY.ID – Indonesian National Police Chief General of Police Listyo Sigit Prabowo said he is committed, if any of his members are found to have committed a violation, they will immediately be dismissed. This applies to all members of the National Police force.
"If there are still (any members) that are found to have (committed) violations related to gambling, any community illnesses, (they will be dismissed). The country is currently dealing with a lot of problems pertaining to national resources, please eradicate them," said Sigit in a video posted on his official Instagram page on Monday, September 12, 2022.
"If there are any reports I don't need to warn them anymore, I will process (them) immediately, I will dismiss (them), this applies to (both) policemen and policewoman," he added.
The National Police Chief said that these decisive actions are done to protect the 430 thousand members of the police and 30 thousand civil servants who have worked hard to build the Bhayangkara Corp to be trusted by the public.
He said he is doing this so that the National Police becomes better. He does not want public trust in the police to diminish more than it already has.
"I have always warned (the members of the police) to avoid violations, especially those that might injure the public sense of justice," said Sigit.
He reminded that all members need to keep each other in check, whether their superiors or subordinates. Like the saying that rotting fish starts at the head.
