Semarang, C Java (ANTARA News) - Police have launched a large-scale patrol over the past few days to crack down on a recent string of terror attacks involving the burning of cars in and around Semarang, capital of Central Java Province.
Chief of the Central Java Provincial Police Inspector General Condro Kirono stated on Wednesday that the provincial police assigned some of its personnel to assist the large-scale patrol.
"Some 450 personnel from the provincial police are assigned to assist the Semarang city police," he revealed.
Despite large-scale patrolling being launched, the number of personnel is far from sufficient in view of the provinces vast territory, he noted.
"It is unlikely for the police to control every single inch and that the publics self-supporting efforts are needed," he emphasized.
The recent string of terror attacks involving the burning of cars had no impact on the public, he stated.
Instead, the public has become more united to secure the environment, he noted.
The Semarang city police had intensified a raid on motorists, particularly motorcyclists, over the past few days.
Chief of the Semarang City Police Senior Commissioner Abiyoso Seno Aji stated that the raid was conducted to restrict the movement of terrorists.
