Jakarta (ANTARA) - Chief of Indonesian National Police General Listyo Sigit Prabowo conveyed his appreciation and gratitude to the Traffic Corps of the National Police for distributing 311,409 social assistance packages to the community.

“Thank you, everyone, for helping to distribute the social aid. Until now, there have been 311,409 social assistance packages which have been distributed by our colleagues (from the Traffic Corps) to the communities in needs," he stated during the Launching of the Phase III of Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (ETLE), coinciding with the 67th National Police Traffic Day here on Thursday.

He added that the social assistance given by the Traffic Corps only served as a secondary aid for the community who were affected by fuel price adjustments, while they were waiting for the distribution of the primary social assistance from the government, such as direct cash assistance (BLT) for fuel (BBM) and the wage subsidy assistance (BSU).

"Hence, on this occasion, I would like to thank all ranks of Traffic Corps," he added.

The social aid packages had been disbursed by the Traffic Corps on September 5-21, 2022, to motorcycle taxi drivers, urban public transport (locally called ‘angkot’) drivers, orphans, porters, street vendors, farmers, fishermen, underprivileged communities, as well as people with disabilities.

On the occasion, the national police chief said that the fuel price adjustment was the result of the development of the recent global situation which had forced the government to make various attempts to adapt to the condition.

One of the efforts is providing more targeted subsidies, such as by transferring the subsidies on fuel to provide subsidies in other sectors.

Hence, the national police chief has expected that all police ranks will also help in disseminating the reasons for the government transferring the subsidies and adjusting the fuel price, thus the community will understand the issue better.

At the occasion, the Traffic Corps launched the implementation of ETLE at eight regional police offices of Aceh, Riau Islands, North Kalimantan, Central Sulawesi, West Sulawesi, North Sulawesi, Maluku, and North Maluku.
