As the main buffer area of the international racing venue, the resort police stationed 100 police personnel at 20 security posts.
"We have set up three inspection posts at Tembolak Pelangi Monument, Bintaro Village, and Dasan Cermen Village," Mataram City Police Chief Senior Commissioner Heri Wahyudi informed here on Friday.
The city police was assisted by local military and Transportation Office personnel to check the passengers and luggage brought of every passing vehicle.
"We also monitor the passengers’ health protocols," he said.
In addition to the three posts, security personnel were assigned at the former Selaparang Airport, which was one of the Transportation Office’s free shuttle bus pick-up points for WSBK spectators.
"We have assigned our personnel there to assist in checking the requirements for attending WSBK, such as tickets, COVID-19 antigen test results and vaccination certificates," Wahyudi stated.
The city police has also established an integrated security post at the Karang Jangkong Roundabout.
"It serves as a control center for traffic security and to disseminate information on the implementation of WSBK," he remarked.
Furthermore, he noted that three patrol teams were in charge all day amid the implementation of the international racing event.
"The first team comprised the Police Traffic Unit and Transportation Office that are assigned to oversee the traffic and manage any congestion," he informed.
The second team comprising the police, military, and public order agency (Satpol PP) will conduct routine night patrols.
"The last team is tasked with disseminating information on health protocols to the community as well as distributing free masks and hand sanitizers," he added.
In addition, the resort police deploys its personnel at each lodging, as guests have occupied all inns in Mataram City.
