JAKARTA, Nov 20 (ANTARA News) - Indonesian Police Chief General Tito Karnavian met with US Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on Monday for strengthening the two countries` cooperation in combating transnational cyber crimes.

The Indonesian National Police and the US Attorney General's Office had agreed to strengthen the bilateral cooperation in dealing with various forms of transnational cyber, economic, and financial crimes, Tito Karnavian said in a press statement.

As revealed in the press statement that ANTARA received in Jakarta on Monday evening, Tito met with Rosenstein on the sidelines of this year's Interpol General Assembly held in Dubai and attended by nearly 1,000 official representatives from 173 countries.

At the meeting, they exchanged views on several issues of common concerns in an endeavor to combat the transnational cyber crimes though the Indonesian Police and their US counterparts have been building good cooperation for decades.

One of the most obvious forms of cooperation that the two countries have done is related to capacity building program in which the Indonesian police personnel receive law enforcement-related training programs from their US counterparts, he said.

"This education and training program is quite helpful for the Indonesian National Police personnel to improve their knowledge and skills," he said, adding that the Jakarta Center for Law Enforcement Centre (JCLEC) could continuously be developed.

The education and training programs run by the JCLEC at the Semarang-based Police Academy could be designed in accordance with the needs, said Tito Karnavian who was accompanied by several Indonesian police top brass during the meeting.

They were Chief of the National Police's Criminal Investigation Department Commissioner General Arief Sulistyanto, Chief of the National Police's International Relation Department Inspector General H.S.Maltha, and Secretary of the National Central Bureau-Interpol Indonesia Brig.Gen.Napoleon Bonaparte.

At the bilateral meeting, US Deputy Attorney General of Rod J. Rosenstein was quoted as saying that the US cooperation with the Indonesian Police is so strategic that it needs to be continued, including in capacity building program.

Meanwhile, in connection with its general assembly, the Interpol revealed in its official website that the four-day conference addressed how technology would change future threats and how it could be used by law enforcement to meet these challenges.

With more than 55 per cent of the world's population having Internet access, criminals are increasingly going after data as a means to make money, as shown by recent ransomware attacks, the Interpol said.

The Interpol General Assembly brought together nearly 1,000 official representatives from 173 countries, including 85 police chiefs and nearly 40 ministers.
