IllustrationIllustration - Indonesian National Police (Polri) gives instructions throughout its ranks to hold the Zebra Jaya Operation which starts on October 30th to November 12th 2018.


It has been five days since the Zebra 2018 Operation took place in several regions in Indonesia. And the violations that have been netted at the operation Zebra 2018 are not only in terms of completeness of the letter, but also in the condition and shape of the vehicle.
