INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia again reaffirms its commitment to support the prevention and eradication of the abuse and illicit trafficking of narcotics and narcotics precursors.
Located at Bank BRI Head Office, Jakarta, Bank BRI signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Narcotics Board of the Republic of Indonesia regarding the provision and utilization of banking services in support of BRI's commitment to eradication of narcotics.
The signing of Memorandum of Understanding was done by the Head of National Narcotics Agency, Komjen Pol Drs. Budi Waseso, SH and President Director of Bank BRI Suprajarto. In addition, Bank BRI and BNN also signed a Cooperation Agreement (PKS) on the Provision and Utilization of Employee and Other Payments Service Payment Services.
The signing was done by the Main Secretary of the National Narcotics Agency Irjen Pol Drs. Sistersins Mamadoa and Institutional Director of Bank BRI Sis Apik Wijayanto, witnessed by Head of BNN and President Director of BRI.
Through the signing of this Memorandum of Understanding and MCC, Bank BRI can provide banking services support to BNN's work units through Bank BRI's work units spread across Indonesia. Bank BRI has 10,649 work units, 23,695 ATMs and 375,855 e-channels across Indonesia.
In addition, Bank BRI also supports government programs in the prevention and eradication of illicit abuse and trafficking of narcotics, psychotropics, precursors and other addictive substances (narcotics).
The signing of this Memorandum of Understanding and MCC was conducted in front of hundreds of new employees of Bank BRI which will soon be placed in BRI working units spread all over Indonesia.
Sometime before, BNN has conducted drug random tests to BRI employees, and the test results showed no employee of Bank BRI using drugs or similar psychotropic substances.
"Banking is an institution that is built from trust, so it is very important for Bank BRI to instill a conscious culture of drugs to all BRI employees", said Sis Apik Wijayanto, Institutional Director of Bank BRI.
In August 2017, Bank BRI in cooperation with BNN also held a workshop on "Realize Dangers of Drugs with BRI" for 2,000 heads of OSIS and high school teachers and equal in 19 working areas of BRI throughout Indonesia. Dissemination of the dangers of drugs is important to do early on as a preventive measure of drug abuse among the younger generation, by providing comprehensive understanding and education to young people about the dangers of drugs.
"BRI is paying particular attention to the young generation, future leaders in order for the next generation to really understand the dangers of drugs for their future," said Sis Apik.
In addition, Bank BRI and BNN will also continue to increase cooperation in the form of education and dissemination about the dangers of drugs through various communication media, such as the spread of danger drug poster that will be spread to all work units of BRI and BNN as well as to a number of schools or other public spaces.
