Five low-cost apartment buildings for Jakarta Police officers will be built this year, an officer has stated.

Jakarta Police facility and construction department head Adj. Sr. Comr. Ariyanto G. said the number of police officers was rising, as was the demand for housing.

"We’ll build low-cost apartments in five locations,” Ariyanto said on Tuesday, citing Ulujami in South Jakarta, Cikarang in West Java, Soekarno-Hatta Airport Police in Tangerang, Banten and Lido in Bogor, West Java among other locations. Their construction was allocated in the 2018 state budget (APBN).

He added that the low-cost apartments would be home to police officers with families from non-commissioned officers (bintara) to officers (perwira).

"In 2016, the budget was managed by the Public Works and Housing Ministry,” he said, as quoted by kompas.com. “But since 2017, this has been managed directly by the regional police to build official residences.”

Each apartment building can house up to 30 families, and each apartment has two rooms. “The budget for the low-cost apartment is Rp 11 billion [US$737,000], and there’s also one for Rp 13 billion," he said. (stu)
