Rights groups unconvinced by police reform

In Indonesia, following an incident of police violence in Tangerang regency in Banten last week, the National Police have been busy attempting to clear their name and, once again, trying to regain public trust amid mounting public disdain for the police.


National Police chief Gen. Listyo Sigit Prabowo sent on Monday a telegram instructing all regional police heads to reprimand “arrogant” officers and take action against those who have taken part in police violence, tempo.co reported.


Listyo also ordered regional police heads to ensure their subordinates strictly follow the police code of conduct and uphold human rights.
