“Boalemo Regency is a coastal area with the main attraction being maritime tourism scattered along its coastline,” said PTU Mahyudin.
“We conduct patrols from morning until evening, and even at night, at several points in the waters of Tilamuta and Bolhutuo,” he added.
He explained that this is to assess the public order and security situation along the coastal areas and to prevent maritime accidents, especially during the current period of heavy rainfall in the Boalemo region, which may lead to large waves.
