Police begin internal reform to root out corruption

BINTANGNEWS.com – The National Police will conduct internal reform in an effort to stamp out the practice of “illegal levies” that continues to plague the institution, a top police officer has said.
The police have uncovered 33 cases of illegal levies involving police officers, National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar said in Jakarta on Saturday.
“The police are committed to fighting the practice of illegal levies in our organization. A special task force had been created to solve this issue,” he said.
He mentioned that the police had uncovered six cases of illegal levies involving nine officers in North Sumatra, four cases implicating four officers in West Java and a case involving two police officers in Papua.
Other than that, the police have also arrested three officers in two cases in West Nusa Tenggara, four officers involved in a case in Gorontalo, ten officers in ten cases in Jambi and one officer in Riau Islands, he added.
The police have long been considered one of the country’s most corrupt institutions.
In a 2015 survey conducted by the Populi Center, some 1,200 people ranked the police as the most corrupt institution behind legislative bodies such as the House of Representatives and local councils.***
