Indonesia is a key strategic partner in fighting transnational criminal organizations and promoting regional stability.
The goals of Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) law enforcement and justice sector programs are to work with the Government of Indonesia to build and sustain effective, democratic, and civilian-led criminal justice institutions in Indonesia.
Police Assistance Program: First implemented in 2000, this DOJ/ICITAP program aims to build capacity and support various units within the Indonesian National Police (INP), including the Marine Police and Criminal Investigations Division, through a Senior Law Enforcement Advisor and support staff in Jakarta.
As part of the Marine Police Special Boat Unit project, 15 boats were donated in January 2008, which, along with training and technical assistance, have increased maritime seizures and filed cases by 300 percent.
Additionally, INL assistance supported the INP in their adoption of a Use of Force Policy that is in line with international standards, as well as a disaster management policy that was signed into law in 2009.
Other INL assistance focuses on police corruption, civil disturbance management, cybercrime, forensics, mid-level police management training and survival skills.
INL assistance is also directed toward combating environmental crimes, border security management, and trafficking-in-persons.
Justice Sector Reform Program: Two INL-funded DOJ/OPDAT Resident Legal Advisors (RLAs) provide advice on drafting a new criminal procedure code to promote professional investigations and foster police-prosecutor cooperation.
The RLAs have helped develop the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) Terrorism and Transnational Crimes Task Force, which has successfully prosecuted 108 terrorists, including more than 50 Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) members, as well as more than 100 trafficking in persons cases since July 2006.
The RLAs also work with the AGO on two other initiatives: the Anti-Corruption Task Force, which has prosecuted 69 cases of corruption since its inception in June 2008, and the newly established Natural Resource Crimes Task Force, created in October 2009.
Drug Law Enforcement Program: This DEA-implemented program focuses on preventing the manufacture and shipment of synthetic drugs. INL assistance funds training, technical assistance, and equipment donations to the police to enhance their counternarcotics capacity.
