He has also directly checked the 91 Command Center or the operation control center of the entire security series for the 42nd ASEAN Summit.
With the TNI, said Sigit, the police will provide protection and oversight from the points of arrival and transfer to the main venue of the Summit.
All personnel will be monitored and can directly coordinate and report the situation and conditions through the Command Center.

Personnel assigned at the Command Center can give orders for measures and activities that field officers must carry out.
Apart from land oversight, TNI-Polri personnel will also oversee all ships crossing during the entire series of activities of the 42nd ASEAN Summit.
"Including related data. Because the area is near the coast or the sea, we want to ensure that all existing ships can be detected, what type of ship, and who owns it. Thank you, we have been provided with the access. Thus, all entry routes, be it via the pier or sea, can be detected," said Sigit.
