Jakarta police to secure first day of OIC Summit

KUALA LUMPUR, March 4 (KUNA) — The Jakarta Metropolitan Police Command will be fully in charge of the security of the first day of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Summit on March 6, Inspector General Tito Karnavian said.
“From March 6, security will be fully in the hands of the Jakarta Metropolitan Police Command,” Tito, who is the commands chief said.
He said the National Police Headquarters will extend support with its personnel.
The police will also be fully involved in the security of the first day of the meeting because it can only be attended by senior officials and so a VIP and not VVIP security system will be used instead.
On the second day of the event on Monday, a VVIP security system will be in place because heads of state would be present at the meeting.
Based on the VVIP security procedures, presidential security forces will be stationed in Ring I as the main focus, while police personnel would act as supporting forces. Tito said he had been informed that the OIC Summit will draw participation from 49 countries, including 49 senior officials and 25 heads of state.
He said the security forces would extend special security to heads of state and ministerial-level officials starting from arrival at the airport, at hotels, conference venue and during departures at the airport.(end).
