TÜRKIYE: In a remarkable achievement, three members of the Indonesian National Police (Polri) successfully graduated from the prestigious Turkish National Police Academy (TNPA) in a ceremony led by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The graduation ceremony was held on last Wednesday (26 Jul) and was also attended by 84 other international students.
The three exceptional graduates, namely Ipda (Second Police Inspector) Regina Setiawan from the Riau Islands Police, Bripka (Chief Police Brigadier) Hilman Lasmana from West Java Police, and Briptu (First Police Brigadier) Tiara Nissa Zulbida from the East Java Police, underwent rigorous training for approximately two years as part of the “The First Level Police Chief Training and The Non-Thesis Master Degree” Capacity Building program.
Brigadier Tiara Nissa Zulbida’s achievement deserves special recognition as she secured a place among the top five best graduates and was the sole female foreign participant to receive this honor.
Her accomplishment is not only a personal triumph but also a milestone for the Indonesian Police force, as this is the first time a member of Polri has received the title of best graduate at TNPA.
“This is the first time that a member of the National Police has won the title of best graduate. This success is an achievement for the Police,” said Kombes Pol Harviadhi Agung Pratama, Indonesian Police Attaché in Ankara.
The graduation ceremony was attended by the Indonesian Police Attaché in Ankara, Kombes Pol (Police Grand Commissioner) Harviadhi Agung Pratama, along with the Indonesian Ambassador, who both praised the outstanding achievements of the Indonesian graduates.
As a testament to her exceptional performance, Briptu Tiara Nissa Zulbida was given the honor of delivering a speech in Turkish before President Erdogan and the distinguished guests in attendance.
Following their momentous graduation, the triumphant trio returned to their homeland, Indonesia, on the 29th of July.
Among them, Briptu Nissa made her way back to her esteemed post at the East Java Regional Police on the 30th of July according to East Java Regional Police Public Relations Head, Kombes Pol Dirmanto.
