Support to Improved Security by Provision of Capacity Building to the Jakarta Centre for Law Enforcement Cooperation (JCLEC)

Brief Overview

Indonesia’s vulnerability to transnational crime is evidenced by its weakness in governance, border management, intelligence and law enforcement. As the Indonesian National Police (INP) is the frontline agency responsible for combating transnational crime, addressing its deficiencies is arguably the most pertinent strategy for improving security and law and order in Indonesia.

To address these challenges, the Government of Indonesia and the European Union has awarded UNODC and its three partners (Charles Sturt University, National Police Improvement Agency) and Kemitraan to carry out a project in supplementing the capacity of JCLEC to train INP and other law enforcement personnel in the skills necessary for tackling transnational crime by establishing a comprehensive training and staff development program.

This project consists of a series of courses, namely, combating transnational organized crime and counter terrorism courses, investigation of senior management course, strategic criminal justice improvement course, specialized courses on management of financial crime, criminal justice management courses, senior executive of crime and command courses, and train the trainers course. Of these 7 (seven) courses, Kemitraan is responsible for 2 (two) courses, namely improvement of strategic criminal justice and criminal justice management courses.

 

Main Achievements/Milestones

Based on the assessment conducted at the end of the first year of the project implementation, courses carried-out have successfully received positive appreciation from the training participants. The readiness of teaching materials, the methods of delivery of the teaching materials, the role of the facilitators in directing the flow of the course and the full support given by the JCLEC staff have contributed to this positive appreciation for the courses. Such assessment was then utilized as the basis for revising modules in the second year of the implementation. These courses are helping to improve coordination, cooperation and synergy between the various law enforcement agencies – something that has not always been easy to achieve.
