National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar will soon step down to assume a new position as Papua Police chief, as part of a wider reshuffle that will see 127 officers moved or be promoted to new positions.

Boy will replace current Papua Police chief Insp. Gen. Paulus Waterpauw, according to an internal National Police telegram issued on Tuesday.

Paulus is set to replace Insp. Gen Setyo Wasisto as deputy chief of the National Police’s Intelligence and Security Agency, while Setyo will take Boy’s post as spokesman.

Before becoming National Police spokesman in 2016, Boy served as Banten Police chief from 2014. He also held the position of Jakarta Police spokesman and Padang Police chief in West Sumatra.
