The INP Traffic Police Corps has held a safety operation from 12-25 April 2021. This safety operation was held in the context of socializing the elimination of homecoming.
Commander of Traffic Police Corps INP Inspector General Pol Istiono said safety operations were targeting the community as a means of socialization to delay the intention of going home for Eid. Istiono said that with the socialization, it is hoped that the public will be aware of their choice to stop going home on Eid 2021 either before or after the homecoming observation on May 6-17, 2021.
“One of the safety operations is for the socialization of the elimination of homecoming. We will aggressively urge the public not to go home, either before, when the elimination of homecoming starts or afterwards,” Istiono said in a written statement, Monday (19/4/2021).
Istiono revealed that a safe operation is also a form of community outreach that the police are serious about driving away travellers who remain reckless even though the government has issued eliminating the homecoming ban. One of the severe actions of the police is to prepare 333 isolation points from Bali to Lampung.
“We also socialize the insulating points. We tell this so that the public can understand that there is no gap to escape the elimination of homecoming, “he said.
After the socialization, the elimination of homecoming will begin on May 6-17, 2021. Istiono ensures that his staff are on guard 24 hours to ensure that no home comers escape the isolation posts.
“We make sure no one can escape. Members on duty 24 hours, there are three shifts. We want the community to realize that the goal of eliminating homecoming is for the common good in breaking the chain of the spread of COVID-19, “he explained.
