"If an incident occurs, we can detect it. We certainly need to learn the application and we will use it for football competitions, especially in security," said Agung at the closing of the Stadium Security Management Course by the teaching team from Coventry University, England, Wednesday, January 1, 2023.

Agung revealed that the Stadium Security Management Course was also attended by the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Ministry of Health, PSSI, and PT LIB.

According to Agung, there were a number of findings in the SUGBK security simulation. There is a threat to two vital objects adjacent to the match location.

"(Such as) the DPR building, government offices, and shopping centers," he said.

Agung added that SUGBK has quite a lot of entrances to access the stadium, namely 94 small doors for small and 20 access roads.

Even so, Agung said that the management of SUGBK had not carried out risk management optimally.

"Then risk management has not been carried out optimally by the manager," he concluded. (***)
