Tito Karnavian, M.A., Ph.D. when giving directions to hundreds of TNI-Polri Officers in Jayapura, located in the Battalion Raider 751 Hall, Sentani, Jayapura, Papua Province, Wednesday (4/9/2019).

"The TNI in this case is assisting the Indonesian National Police, related to public security and reaching law enforcement, we see overall that the presence of the TNI and Polri in the regions of Papua and West Papua is the implementation of the main tasks of the TNI and Polri contained in the TNI law or Police, "said the TNI Commander.

TNI Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto said that the presence of TNI and Polri institutions could reduce the turmoil or demonstrations that occurred in Papua and West Papua. For that, let's once again carry out the tasks given and charged as well as possible.

"Strengthen the city security system, if I look at the concept of operations the troops have entered the spider web concept and they will move anywhere they cannot because they are monitored," said Air Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto.
