Kepolisian Negara Republik Indonesia – The Indonesian National Police (INP) – ranks as a Ministry in itself and answers directly to the President of the Republic of Indonesia.

The INP was restructured in 2000 in an effort to transform it from a military to a civilian force. This has led to improved working practices and cultures, and greater emphasis on the role of community policing in effective crime prevention.    Further phases of reform are ongoing until 2025 and will see the INP established as a centre of policing excellence.

The INP is made up of more than 400,000 police officers and civilian employees, deployed to the 32 regional police forces of the 17,000 islands which make up Indonesia.  Currently, there are more than 13,000 police women, many in key strategic managerial positions.

The INP regularly participates in United Nations missions abroad, including;

  • Formed Police Unit  in Sudan;
  • United Nations Missions in Sudan;
  • African Union/United Nations Hybrid operation in Darfur;
  • United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti.


Headed by a Police Inspector General, the INP’s Division of International Relations (DIR) comprises more than 120 police officers and civilian employees, including 18 women.  The Division is made up of two bureaus:

  • INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) for Indonesia;
  • Bureau of International Missions.

Because the DIR  has a key role to play not only in assisting the INP to fight international and transnational crime but also in drafting legislation on extradition and mutual legal assistance, it enjoys excellent working relationships with all governmental and law enforcement institutions.

The DIR is located at the INP Headquarters.  Its main working priorities include;

  • International / transnational crime;
  • UN peacekeeping operations;
  • Humanitarian missions;
  • Capacity building;

Providing protection and legal assistance for Indonesian citizens abroad.
