The head of state then lauded the hard work of all police officers in serving the people and defending the nation.
 
The president and the Indonesian people have pinned high hopes on the police, as the institution has reach till the village level, thereby allowing officers to interact with residents on a daily basis.
 
Conversely, daily interactions with residents will also result in constant monitoring and assessment of the officers, he noted.
 
Jokowi drew attention to the results of a recent survey conducted by newspaper Kompas wherein 58.3 percent of the survey respondents perceived police officers to have adhered to the police's precision values: predictiveness, responsibility, and transparency.
 
"However, remember, some 28.6 percent (of the respondents) believed that the work remains undone," he affirmed.
 
The president remarked that the police still need to support measures taken by the government to address the COVID-19 pandemic and the current uncertainties due to the energy, food, and financial crises.
 
The police must also ensure that the residents are safe and remain in order while facing those challenges, he concluded.
 
Former president Megawati Soekarnoputri; former vice presidents Try Sutrisno, Hamzah Haz, and Jusuf Kalla; as well as government ministers, heads of national institutions, and the military and police top brass, were present during the commemoration ceremony.
