National Police chief Gen. Badrodin Haiti has officially inaugurated Insp. Gen. Ari Dono Sukmanto as the new chief of the National Police's Criminal Investigation Department (Bareskrim) on Tuesday, who is praised as an experienced investigator.
Ari, who previously served as the deputy chief of the department, takes the head position vacated by Comr. Gen Anang Iskandar who retired this month.
"He served as the deputy chief of criminal investigations. He is a two-star general who graduated from the police academy in 1985 and has vast experience in the investigation division," National Police spokesperson Brig. Gen. Agus Rianto said on Monday as quoted by Antara news agency.
Throughout his career in the police force, Ari served as a criminal investigations director of West Java Police and Yogyakarta Police. He was also appointed as a core investigator for certain crimes at Bareskrim in 2009.
Badrodin expected Ari's appointment would bring improvement to the department's performance.
"He must also be responsive and sensitive in every law enforcement operation especially those that have the public's attention. Law enforcement must be used for justice only, not for other interests," Badrodin said after the inauguration on Tuesday at the National Police's headquarters.
Badrodin also swore in several other police officers receiving promotions in Tuesday's inauguration event. They included Insp. Gen Sabar Rahardjo as high-ranking police officer at the police's human resources staff department as he is entering retirement, Inps. Gen. Jodie Rooseto as the National Police's Human Resources Department chief, Insp. Gen. Bambang Waskito as West Java Police chief, Brig. Gen. Arief Sulistyanto as the National Police chief's expert staff of management, Brig. Gen Musyafak as West Kalimantan Police, Brig. Gen Yazid Fanani as Jambi Police chief and Brig. Gen Lukman Wahyu as West Sulawesi Police chief. (rin)
