Indonesian Police To Seek Training from United Kingdom


The Indonesian National Police said on Friday that they would seek assistance from England’s National Crime Agency (NCA) to further train the force’s Mobile Brigade (Brimob) to help catch wanted terror suspect Santoso in Poso, Central Sulawesi.

National Police chief Gen. Badrodin Haiti said the plan was decided following the Indonesian Military’s (TNI) reluctance to conduct a joint training session between the Army’s Special Forces (Kopassus) and police officers in order to improve the latter’s capability to survive in the wilderness.

“We have several alternatives if the TNI does not want to [conduct a joint training session]. One of the countries we may seek assistance from is England,” he told reporters at the National Police headquarters in South Jakarta.

Although the plan has not yet been made official, Badrodin said he hoped there could be an agreement between the NCA and the National Police so that an instructor from the agency could be sent to train Indonesian officers.
