Introduction
The Jakarta Centre for Law Enforcement Cooperation (JCLEC) is located within the Indonesian National Police Academy (AKPOL) in Semarang, Indonesia. The establishment of the Centre was announced by the Indonesian and Australian Governments in February 2004 and Australia has committed AUD$36.8million to support its development and operations over the next five years to 2009.
This initiative reflects the shared priority given to bilateral and regional cooperation on a variety of contemporary security issues. Since the announcement to establish the Centre in Indonesia various countries have expressed an interest in supporting its training role through the provision of technical assistance and funding.

The Centre is intended as a resource for the South East Asia region in the fight against transnational crime, with a focus on counter-terrorism and will coordinate and facilitate a range of training programs, including seminars and workshops. The establishment of this training and education institution by Indonesia and Australia will assist governments meet its security interests and objectives in South East Asia.

The Centre was officially opened by the President of the Republic of Indonesia, Her Excellency Ibu Hj.Megawati Soekarnoputri in Semarang on 3 July 2004. Although conceived as a bilateral initiative, both Indonesia and Australia welcome participation by regional countries and contributions from the wider international community supportive of the Centre’s goals.

The Centre will work particularly closely with law enforcement agencies in South East Asia, and cooperate where possible with existing centres such as the South East Asian Regional Centre for Counter Terrorism (SEARCCT) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) in Bangkok, Thailand. It will be able to participate in work undertaken by the ad hoc working groups on law enforcement and legal issues established at the Bali Ministerial Meeting on Counter-Terrorism in February 2004, and related follow-up activities.
The Centre is commended to our regional neighbours and to the wider international community. This facility will strengthen the capacity of foreign governments and law enforcement personnel develop and attain complex security objectives in South East Asia.

Continued government support will ensure the Centre’s long-term viability and will promote values of learning and understanding through shared experience, to combat global terrorism and transnational crime.
