An official from the South Denpasar Police Department said police are conducted crowd-dispersing operations to combat illegal street racing and public disturbances.
The Head of the South Denpasar Police Department, Kompol I Gede Sudyatmaja, confirmed that an inspection program called Yustisi Operation was conducted on Saturday evening (19/3) in anticipation of public disturbances and criminal activities that might occur around the South Denpasar sub-district.
Teenagers that gathered in spots such as Jalan Taman Pancing, Bypass Ngurah Rai Sanur, Jalan Raya Serangan, Jalan Raya Pemogan, Jalan Suwung Batan Kendal, Jalan Sidakarya and Jalan Mertasari were dispersed by the police to prevent illegal street racing.
“This operation was initiated to counter illegal street racing and public disturbances in our area,” Kompol Sudyatmaja said Sunday (20/3).
During the operation that occurred from 10:00 pm until 1:30 am on Saturday, the officers educated the children about proper conduct and asked them to go back home.
Sudyatmaja also said that he would regularly conduct similar operations to create a safer environment in his area. “We will keep patroling our area as part of our efforts to reduce the crime rate,” Kompol Sudyatmaja concluded.
