BALI, THE IMAGE – Deputy Head of Bali Regional Police (Wakapolda) Brigadier General Pol Brig. Pol. I Ketut Suardana, attended the Phase 1 Launching of the National Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (ETLE) from the Perkasa Raga Garwita Polda Bali Building, Tuesday (23/3/2021). The event was also attended by the Chairperson of the Bali Provincial DPRD, Kajati Bali, PJU Polda Bali, Head of Bali Bappeda, Kadis PUPR Bali, Kadiskes Bali, Head of the Bali Regional Revenue Agency.
According to the Bali Regional Police Chief, the ETLE system is one of the National Police’s priority programs. The ETLE system in the 4.0 era is considered very important, in addition to being the Chief of Police’s priority program to keep up with the times in utilizing technology. “If the ETLE program can run optimally, it is hoped that it will be able to reduce the potential for irregularities in the field either triggered by violations or field officers, which may be that both parties are trying to take transactional actions,” explained the Bali Police Deputy.
To build this ETLE system, of course the Police cannot move alone. There is a need for synergy between relevant stakeholders in order to improve the quality of its use, considering that this system requires large amounts of Sarpras and budget.
Along with the launching of the national ETLE system, this activity was also filled with the awarding of awards from the National Police Corps to 3 Polres namely, Denpasar Traffic Police as the 1st winner in traffic accident data collection through the application of the Intergreted road safety management system, Satlantas Polres Tabanan as the 3rd winner in the RSPA competition ( Road Safety Partnership Action) 2020 and Satlantas Polres Karangasem received awards in the category of helmet use program for all motorcycle users.
The Deputy Chief of Police said that the problem of using cellphones and using helmets were still two problems that needed special attention. The one-star general also hopes that other Polres will emulate the 3 Polres who received the award to reduce violations. “I hope that the other Polres in the ranks will follow these 3 Polres to reduce violations, and I also hope that the officers make a special humane touch to make them aware of wearing helmets while traveling,” concluded the Bali Police Deputy.***
