The way in which people use technology to communicate and receive their daily information fix these days has become way more advanced. This is why the Bali police force felt compelled to modernize their communication system in order to provide a better service to the public.

On Wednesday (17/05) in Denpasar, the police launched an application called “Sistem Aplikasi Layanan Kepolisian Bali”, or Salak Bali, specifically designed so that the public have easier access to the police, as well as to create a more effective and efficient service.

“This application is a product from our Promoter Kapolri program whose job is to modernize the police’s supporting public service technology,” said Petrus Reinhard Golose, Bali Police Chief, in Denpasar, as quoted by Berita Dewata. “You can use Salak Bali to receive and process emergency calls [SOS], to report and make a complaint about particular problems happening in the field. And you can do that simply through your smartphone.”

He added that the application can also be used by the public to report crime and to verify fake news. Another creative breakthrough is the Absensi Online feature which works to control the attendance of on-duty officers. Golose hopes that through the Salak Bali app the public can now have an easier and faster option to get in touch with the police. Moreover, people can directly monitor the progress of their report or complaint via the app.

The technology behind Salak Bali and Absensi Online is supported by PT Telkom Witel. “Thanks to PT Telkom Witel Denpasar and hopefully we can collaborate more in the future, especially in supporting the police to provide a better service to the public,” said Golose.

    I went to Bali with family for tour. On 5th april in 66 beach beside Capil beach restaurant one surf guide molested my daughter . We went to tourist police in kuta but they did not register any complain but sent us to kuta police station. In Kuta police station they refused to register any complain on the pretext that they don’t have any women police and sent us to Denpsar but in Denpasar police station also did not have any women police and refused to register any complain and wanted the phone number of the accused , witness other than family member and even asked me to come next day with the accused though I showed them the person’s photograph and locations photo. As we had our flight next day we could not stay back and had to return without even registaring any complain. Please guide me to register a complain against this criminal and punish as per law of the land.

    My handset Iphone X was stolen (on 3rd January 2020) by 2 locals on bike during my stay in Seminayak, Bali recently. It was stolen near “Jl. Sunset Road No.88S, Seminyak, Kuta, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia” at a red light of main road. I was on a scooty with my brother and as we stopped on the red light the bikers came and grabbed my hand, I tried holding it firm but they hurted me and snatched my handset. Please help.
    Atleast, help me out to register a complaint so that i can apply insurance claim request from my country.
