As the first Indonesian-built submarine, the Alugoro-405 also represented a transfer of technology from South Korea to PT PAL. The building of the Alugoro-405 also makes Indonesia the only Southeast Asian country that is capable of building a submarine.
Indonesian Police to Reward Netizens for Reporting Cyberspace Crimes
The Indonesian National Police has announced that it plans to reward netizens who report crimes or potentially criminal acts on social media.
The step is part of Indonesian National Police head General Listyo Sigit Prabowo’s plan to launch the Virtual Police to deal with online crimes or crimes originating in cyberspace.
“The badge awards are the [police’s] token of appreciation for members of the public who help our Cybercrimes Directorate with their investigations,” said Indonesian National Police spokesman Police Grand Commissioner Ahmad Ramadhan at a press conference Wednesday.
While the Indonesian National Police has yet to confirm when they will issue the badge or even determine its criteria, the Cybercrimes Directorate did upload the designs for the award on its Instagram account @ccicpolri.
General Listyo has drawn up the Virtual Police policy, after President Joko Widodo urged the police to be careful in enforcing the articles of the Information and Electronic Transaction Law [UU ITE].
Aside from monitoring cyberspace for potential crimes or preventing the public from committing offenses, the Virtual Police also sought to educate the public, and warn them online.
