PERAN SATUAN LALU LINTAS POLRES TANJUNGPINANG DALAM MENEKAN ANGKA KECELAKAAN DI KOTA TANJUNGPINANG
One of the duties of the police through the traffic unit (Satlantas) is traffic investigation and law enforcement in the traffic sector. The number of road users every day is not free from traffic problems, one of which is traffic accidents. Potholes, inadequate road facilities and bad habits of the road users are the main factors in traffic accidents. In 2017-2019 there was an increase and decrease in the number of accidents in the Tanjungpinang Police Station area. The formulation of the problem taken in this study is the role of the Tanjungpinang City Traffic Police in reducing the number of accidents in Tanjungpinang City. This research uses descriptive-qualitative research methods with data collection methods through interviews, observation and documentation. From the results of the research, the authors conclude that the role of the Tanjungpinang Police Traffic Unit in reducing the number of accidents in the City of Tanjungpinang has not been evenly distributed to all road users in Tanjungpinang City. In the process of playing a role as a policy, strategy, communication and dispute resolution have been carried out, but have not yet achieved effective results. Thus, it is hoped that the role of the Traffic Police in reducing the number of accidents in the City of Tanjungpinang can run optimally and for the greater interest, namely accident prevention can run well.
