JAKARTA — DKI Jakarta Provincial Government launched mobile application Jakarta Aman (Safe Jakarta) on Tuesday. People were urged to download and use the application. “I also recommend to heads of community units (RT and RW) in Jakarta to download this application. There is also an application for community, so Siskamling (community patrols) can be done,” said Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan on Tuesday.
