Police, military officers get new vehicles
Denpasar: The Bali administration handed over 300 motorbikes as a grant to the Udayana military command and Bali Police to support the island’s security.
The military officers have received 200 of the motorbikes, while 100 were allocated to the police.
“Security is the most important thing for the island,” said Governor Mangku Pastika while handing over the motorbikes to the two institutions on Monday. Bali, he said, heavily relied on tourism, which is very vulnerable to security threats.
“I am expecting that our assistance can improve security operations here and make people feel safe and secure,” the governor said.
Brig. Gen. Ketut Untung Yoga, deputy chief of Bali Police, said that police personnel in the villages would operate the motorcycles.
