National Police chief Gen. Tito Karnavian promised on Thursday a trouble-free 18th Asian Games  closing ceremony at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium on Sunday, thanks in part to the deployment of nearly 9,500 police, military and public order officers to secure the event.

Tito said the security personnel would do what it takes to make sure nothing disrupts the Games until it comes to an end this Sunday.

Tito held a meeting with Indonesian Military commander Air Chief Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto, chairman of the Indonesian Asian Games Organizing Committee (Inasgoc) Erik Thohir, Jakarta police and military leaders and the city authorities to discuss security arrangements for the closing ceremony, Antara reported.

“So far security has been well maintained during the Asian Games. There have been no reports of security problems facing our guests, athletes and officials,” Tito said.
