The Jakarta Police officially welcomed Insp. Gen. Idham Azis as their new chief on Wednesday.

National Police chief Gen. Tito Karnavian swore in Idham, former internal affairs division head, to replace Insp. Gen. Mochammad Iriawan, who was promoted to be Tito's operations assistant.

"[...] I will obey all laws and carry out the duty entrusted to me with full dedication, awareness and responsibility," Azis declared in his oath on Wednesday morning at the National Police's headquarters in South Jakarta.

Tito also inaugurated Brig. Gen. Martuani Sormin as the new head of the internal affairs division, Insp. Gen. Unggung Cahyono as logistics assistant to the National Police chief and Brig. Gen. Rudolf Albert Rodja as the West Papua Police chief.
