The examination of residents who will enter Bali has been tightened with an additional 20 personnel from the Bali Provincial Sat Pol PP officers.
The officers checked the identity of the residents and the rapid antigen test letter as a condition for citizens to enter Bali, since last Thursday (1/4).
The thickening of the number of officers on duty at the Gilimanuk Port KTP checkpoint was carried out to prevent the entry of terrorists.
From a joint operation with Satpol PP Jembrana and Satpol PP Province last Thursday night, officers found 10 people who did not carry a rapid antigen letter and 11 residents who did not use masks, and 4 residents who mistakenly used masks.
The residents who do not carry the rapid antigen test letter were asked to undergo a rapid test in the Gilimanuk Port area, while those who do not carry a mask are only subject to sanctions for making a statement letter.
Secretary of the Bali Provincial Satpol PP I Gusti Agung Ngurah Partama said the thickening of personnel was to increase security at Gilimanuk Port, to maintain comfort in the Bali region.
“The most important factors are the comfort of the area, the comfort of the area because when they feel comfortable, many people will come to visit Bali, this is where our Satpol PP and staff play a role as an assistant to the governor as a regional apparatus to maintain security and public order, “he explained.
