The Head of the Bali Police Department, Irjen Pol Putu Jayan Danu Putra, confirmed that following the central government’s instruction, Jayan Danu would ensure proper deployment of his personnel during the year-end holidays.

A large number of domestic tourists have started coming to the island for vacation.

During the morning briefing at Bajra Sandi, Renon Denpasar on Thursday (23/12), Irjen Pol Jayan Danu instructed his personnel to start the ‘Candle Operation.’ This involves intensively patrolling and securing the island from the 24th of December to the 2nd of January 2022.

This program was also initiated in anticipation of the Omicron variant. It ensures the implementation of prevention protocols in public areas. “I urge everyone to comply with the government’s instruction for our own safety and health,” Irjen Pol Jayan Danu said.
