, Jakarta - National Police Chief Gen. Idham Azis revived the term Pam Swakarsa through the Chief of Police Regulation Number 4 of 2020 concerning Self-Defense Security or Pam Swakarsa, on August 4, 2020. Head of the Public Information Bureau, Public Relations Division of the National Police Headquarters, Brigadier General Awi Setiyono, said that his party had conducted an evaluation and a meeting before issuing the regulation. Where, one of the considerations is the imbalance between the number of police personnel and the total population of Indonesia.

So, said Awi, changing the color of the security guard uniform to the same color as the police, there is hope for a deterrent effect. "There are many functions of the caretaker, the police function in the field. Because their performance is in offices and factories, who want a safe and orderly situation," Awi said at his office, South Jakarta, on Thursday, September 17, 2020.

In addition, the presence of the Pam Swakarsa will be one of the efforts of the National Police to maintain order and security. These security guards and security guards will be given limited police authority and functions.

Not only at security guards and security guards, the police also take advantage of local wisdom or local institutions to protect the environment. "This is all a manifestation of our efforts to protect the environment. We hope that they can help by being at the hands of the police," said Awi.

The National Police Chief signed the Chief of Police Regulation Number 4 of 2020 concerning Self-Defense Security or Pam Swakarsa, on August 4, 2020.

In this new perkap, security is defined as carrying out the police function based on the will, awareness and interest of the community itself, which then gets confirmation from the Police. In the field, they consist of the Security Unit aka Security Guard and the Environmental Security Unit or Satkamling.

However, there are safeguards that come from social institutions / local wisdom. Described in Article 3 paragraphs 3 and 4, Pam Swakarsa originating from social institutions / local wisdom can be in the form of Pecalang in Bali; Public Order and Security Awareness Group; Bhayangkara students; and Bhayangkara Students.

Apart from that, the perkap also instructed the security guard's uniform color change. If initially the security guard uniform was white for morning service and dark blue for night service, then the new uniform will be changed to brown. The rank of each group is displayed on the guard's right and left shoulder.

In its history, Pam Swakarsa emerged when demonstrations during the reform era broke out. This security was under the command of ABRI, helping the security forces to hold back the mass movement during the 1998 MPR Special Session. No doubt Pam Swakarsa often got involved in clashes with students who at that time dominated the mass demonstrations.
