“In practical terms, my wife will probably need [the Rp 75,000 bill] the most since she depends a lot on bills when shopping at traditional markets,” he added.The exchange schedule after Sept. 3 is not yet accessible, but citizens wishing to purchase the special bill — issued to commemorate Indonesia’s 75th Independence Day — still have other opportunities since the registration process is opening gradually in two stages.The first stage is from Monday at 3 p.m. until Sept. 30. The places of exchange include the BI headquarters and 45 representative offices in all provinces.The second stage is from Oct. 1 until completion. The exchange will be available at the BI headquarters and representative offices, as well as designated banks. After Bank Indonesia (BI) issued a special commemorative Rp 75,000 (US$5.08) bill on Monday, enthusiastic citizens stormed to the central bank’s website to take their share of the available quota.By Tuesday morning, the appointment slots available at pintar.bi.go.id for the public to exchange their money with the new bill at the BI headquarters in Central Jakarta and BI representative offices across Java were all full up until Sept. 3.“Early this morning I accessed the website to register for the exchange at the Semarang branch office [in Central Java] but the quota was full,” father of two Toni Rendra told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday. BI Deputy Governor Rosmaya Hadi said in a press conference on Tuesday that as many as 68,051 citizens had registered for the exchange via the website, which is equivalent to 97 percent of the quota available for the first 10 days of exchange.She said the remaining 3 percent was available at representative offices in the provinces of Papua, West Papua and Gorontalo as well in Sibolga in North Sumatra, Lhoksemauwe in Aceh, Ternate in North Maluku and Mamuju in West Sulawesi.Rosmaya said BI would provide a quota of 300 of the Rp 75,000 bills per day for the BI headquarters and 150 bills per day for each representative office.The central bank, she added, deliberately divided up the exchange schedules with a limited number of bills in each period so that people would not flock to exchange centers amid the coronavirus pandemic.“We have calculated how [the citizens] should exchange [the money]; the schedule, the duration, so we can still follow COVID-19 protocols,” Rosmaya said.She acknowledged the public’s enthusiasm for the commemorative bill since its launch, saying that BI would reevaluate the exchange timelines.BI has set a limit of one bill per citizen. In total, it will release 75 million of the Rp 75,000 bills.Topics :

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Turks and Caicos, April 28th 2017: The Police Commissioner’s report gives a lowered number for reported crimes in the past year in the Turks and Caicos. In listing his figures the Top Cop reported an up in the number of possession of drug cases, with a total of 97 cases for the year, with 24 cases recorded with the intent to supply. With regards to Burglary and Aggravated Burglary, a total of 703 were reported this year, 45 of which he says were aggravated. In 2015 this figure stood at 65 burglaries.His statements say 134 robberies were recorded, with Providenciales accounting for 130. Ninety Six (96) of these robberies involved the use of a firearm, while some involved more than one individual with a firearm taking the number of firearms used to commit robberies to 111. Compared to 2015, only 19 robberies were recorded.In answering questions to this 111 firearms figure, the commissioner attributed this to “a very small group of persons committing multiple offences. Belief is that we have a very small number of very dangerous career criminals who will stop at nothing to steal and rob”.Meanwhile, a total of 521 persons were arrested, while 271 of them were charged and reprimanded before the courts. One hundred and Fifty arrested account for local males, while 98 account for foreign males arrested.In his report, the Commissioner attributed the root cause of these crimes to the large numbers of undocumented individuals living in illegal and unregulated housing, issues he says will be tackled this year.#MagneticMediaNews#TCICrimeStatistics Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:

Built at a cost of $107 million, the five story structure is state of the art and much bigger than the current crime lab that is housed in an old hospital.The building will be the home of the county crime lab, the Sheriff Department’s Major Crimes division and the property and evidence unit. Gathering these services and resources in one location may enhance the efficiency of investigators who are assigned to cases such as homicide, sexual assault, child and elder abuse. “We can do everything we need to pretty much here in the building,” said San Diego Captain Mike McClain.McClain who heads the Major Crimes Division said the DNA tests used for homicide and sexual assault cases and the chemical tests to detect drugs can be conducted in the same building where detectives are working. “So rather than driving around town to various locations, everything can be done within this facility now,” said McClain. About 15,000 exams are performed at the crime lab each year for cases from 30 law enforcement agencies in San Diego County.Sheriff’s investigators with the Major Crimes division will be the first to move in, possibly as early as next week. Employees from the crime lab will follow in multiple phases, with the property and evidence unit being the last group to move in. Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter
