Security guards play an important role in national development. Without them, it will be difficult for economic activities to run well; security guards ensure that productive operations can take place smoothly in office buildings and traditional markets alike. President Joko Widodo reinforced this message when he highlighted the importance of security guards who are at the fore of maintaining public safety and order, and that being a security guard is a noble profession. The president delivered this statement during the opening ceremony of the National Security Solutions Industry Conference (KIPNAS) 2018 at the State Palace, Jakarta, on Wednesday morning (12/12). Among the attendees were Nawakara CEO Dino Hindarto and other representatives of the Security Solutions Providers (BUJP), as well as stakeholders from throughout Indonesia. Overall, the opening showed the significant value of KIPNAS 2018.
KIPNAS 2018 is where all stakeholders of the security solutions industry convened-the providers, government officials, the Indonesian National Police, scholars, associations, clients, and companies from supporting industries. The event is organized by the Association of Indonesian BUJP (ABUJAPI) with 1,780 member companies across Indonesia and is an association for more than two million security guards. The size of the organization signals its significant social and economic impact towards national development.
The security industry records business turnover of more than 60 trillion rupiahs per annum. An industry of this size requires a blueprint for its development – a need addressed by ABUJAPI during KIPNAS 2018 on 11-13 December in Bandung. The formulation of the Blueprint of the National Security Solutions Industry for the Advancement of Security Guards was supported by the Indonesian Police, Ministry of Manpower, the Association of Indonesian Security Profession (APSI), and the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN).
