In Jakarta, it is most advisable to contact or even go directly to your embassy when things go badly wrong, before filing a report with the police. Please keep in mind that local police response may be slow, with the possibility that “fees” may be requested to facilitate the processing of your case. Also, be aware that in cases of sexual assault, victim blaming is likely. Your embassy can provide guidance on local laws, and help you navigate the process of filing a police report. The following contacts for local assistance may be helpful too:

Police

The Indonesian National Police Emergency Switchboard number is 110. This central switchboard will transfer your emergency request for assistance to the nearest local police precinct. Please note that not all operators are able to assist in English. Also, response may not be prompt.

Women’s Resources

Besides your embassy, the following organisations may be able to provide information, counselling, and possible assistance through legal processes.
