Indonesia Police Watch (IPW) released on Friday a sobering report on the state of the National Police, just days away from its 66th anniversary, which falls on July 1.
The report showed that police behavior and accountability has been in general decline over the past three years.
Looking at motor-biker behavior on the roads, police performance is really at the bottom with no hope.
Therefore, imposing fines on low-ranking officers won’t help. Overhauling the leadership, however, is a must.
