Ministry provides four water buses for Biak Numfor in 2020

Biak, Papua (ANTARA) – The Transportation Ministry has allocated Rp800 million of fund in its 2020 budget for the provision of four water buses for public transportation in the islands of Biak Numfor District, Papua Province, a local government official revealed.

“The four water buses, each with the capacity of 20 passengers, are expected to support the strategic program of national tourism to serve sea transportation routing Owi Island-Biak City and Padaido Islands-Aimando,” Head of Biak Transportation Office Fransisco Olla said here on Sunday.

He admitted that the district faces the lack of sea transportation to reach villages and a number of tourism spots. Hence, the water buses would help connect all areas in the islands, and enable local residents to distribute their farming yields to Biak City.

Olla said, the water buses are expected to boost local economy in Padaido Islands and Aimando.

Padaido Islands which are famous for their diving sites with pristine water, wide sandy beaches, and high biodiversity can be reached about two hours by speedboats from Biak.

URGENT ATTENTION: PTSD Causes Officers to Take Their Own Lives at an Alarming Rate During the Holiday Season & Beyond

End PTSD In BLUE

Help End PTSD

NEW YORK, Dec. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EndPTSD ‘s TTMPT.Org, A Registered 501(c)3 Non-Profit, is Launching their #GivingHolidays Fundraiser and Heightened Awareness Campaign for Police Officers Across The US Suffering From Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The Holidays present a unique set of problems for cops who suffer from PTSD. While most people feel Joyful around the Holiday Season, Those With PTSD May Suffer From A Lack Of Joy. This Puts Additional Stress On Their Lives When Dealing With Work and Their Home-life. The Result Can Be Devastating and Possibly Lead To Overreactions at Work & Home, Along With Alcohol & Drug Abuse and Self-Harm.

  • Police on duty experience different degrees of trauma that lead to PTSD.
  • This year alone, 212 officers in the US have committed suicide.
  • There are approximately 1 million police officers throughout the US and close to 240,000 of them have PTSD.
  • Roughly 330,000 have partial symptoms that do eventually lead to PTSD if not properly addressed.

PTSD is the result of one extreme traumatic situation or exposure to many stressful incidents over time. These pressures in some officers often lead to physical and mental health problems such as overwhelming anxiety, depression, phobias, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep disorders, and destructive behavior such as domestic violence, alcoholism, eating disorders, prescription drug abuse, unintentional overreactions on the job with peers and the public, and, tragically, taking their own lives.

With End PTSD’s TTMPT (Talk To Me Post Tour) peer facilitator program, officers can anonymously communicate with trained, active and retired law enforcement volunteers to get the help they need to process, share, talk through what they’ve experienced and de-stress without fear of losing their status at work or job. If need be, those who are in crisis could be referred to professional therapists for further treatment.

We are asking for those who benefit from the hard work and protection that our police provide to please donate to the End PTSD’s TTMPT.org program so our police officers across the US get the help they need — to remain healthy while protecting our great nation during this holiday season and beyond.

PROTECT AND SERVE THOSE WHO PROTECT AND SERVE.

Jakarta police unveil drug distribution hidden in toy packages

Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Jakarta Police’ Drug Investigation Unit has unveiled distribution network of ecstasy, hidden in packages of children’s toys, in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta.

“Camouflaging the drug packages is their modus operandi. The drug is hidden in the packages of children’s toys, and the suspect identified by his initials HR takes the packages and distributes them,” Spokesman of the Jakarta Metropolitan Police Senior Commissioner Yusri Yunus said here on Sunday.

The police arrested HR in Kemayoran after receiving a tip-off on Thursday (Dec 26). The drug raid operation also resulted in the seizure of 1,800 ecstasy pills.

The suspect admitted that he still kept more drugs. Furthermore the police conducted a search in an apartment unit in Kemayoran, and found 200 ecstasy pills. “So, in total, we seize 2,000 ecstasy pills,” Yunus said.

The suspect has also agreed to help the police hunt down another suspect, KN, who is on the wanted list for drug offences.

However, on their way to uncover the hideouts of KN, HR attempted to escape from the police’s clutches, prompting the personnel to open fire.

“The police then took stern measures by shooting at him. HR died on the way to the Kramat Jati Police Hospital,” Yunus said.

The police would continue hunting KN and those belonging to his network. “They are operating in Kemayoran and West jakarta. We will hunt them. The team has already knownthe identity of the suspect,” Yunus said.
