Oregon Public Safety Academy Hosts Law Enforcement Leaders from Indonesia (Photo) - 03/15/19

The International Visitor Program at WorldOregon (formerly World Affairs Council of Oregon) is hosting a group of officers from Indonesia looking at the topic of women in law enforcement through United States Department of State International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). 

While in the United States, this group is spending time in four states including Oregon.  In Oregon they will be spending time with our partners at the Portland Police Bureau and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. 

Today the group visited the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training's (DPSST) Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem.  While at the Academy they learned about the state's professional certification standards and law enforcement training programs, observed various classes in session, toured the 235-acre campus, and attended the graduation of the 385th Basic Police Class.  Afterwards enjoyed lunch at the Academy while meeting with some of Oregon's law enforcement leaders including Oregon State Police Deputy Superintendent Terri Davie, Tigard Police Chief Cathy McAlpine, and Central Point Police Chief Kris Allison.  The lunch discussion included topics such as recruitment and retention, workforce diversity, training and education programs, and many others. 

Out of the four-state visit, Oregon was the only state they visited where all city, county, state, tribal and university law enforcement officers train at the same academy with the same curriculum.

The guests included:

Ms. Resti ARINI - Head, Selection Sub-Section Human Resources Bureau - Indonesia National Police - West Papua Region

Ms. Yasintha MAU, S.H., M.Hum - Unit Chief, Sub Directorate of Women and Children - Directorate of Criminal Investigations - Indonesian National Police - East Java Region

Ms. Riza SATIVA - Officer of Police Science - Police Science College (STIK PTIK) - Indonesian National Police

Ms. Fitria Mega SETIAWAN - Head, Criminal Psychology Sub Unit - Human Resources Bureau - Indonesian National Police Headquarters

Ms. Happy Margowati SUYONO - Unit Chief, Commander Protection of Women and Children - Tapanuli Selatan District Police Office

Ms. Siti Rohani TAMPUBOLON - Head, Unit 1, Sub- Directorate 2 - Directorate of Drug Investigation - North Sumatra Regional Police

The group above, joined by two interpreters, were selected by the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta as leaders or emerging leaders in their field and invited by the U.S. Department of State to participate in a three-week exchange to connect with their professional counterparts across the U.S.

DPSST Director Eriks Gabliks said "We are honored to host our law enforcement counterparts from Indonesia and share our work and equally important learn about their organization, culture, training, challenges and emerging issues."
