Indonesia: one policeman attacked every 3 days in January

February 2: Indonesia Police Watch data shows that 11 police officers across the country were beaten, attacked and shot by civilians, three of them fatally, throughout January.

“The phenomenon shows that the relationship between the police and civilians has gotten worse,” IPW chairman Neta S. Pane said Tuesday in a statement sent to The Jakarta Post. […]

“Attacks on police officers show civilians’ prolonged disappointments toward the police, who are deemed arrogant,” he said.

“The attacks toward the police will go on unless they improve their image and performance,” Neta added.
