The International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) is looking for a Country Director for Indonesia to assist in establishing, equipping, and training specialized police units dedicated to online child protection that can carry out effective investigations to protect children from online sexual exploitation and abuse. In addition to training law enforcement officers, responsibilities include training prosecutors and judges where the police units are located in order to bring cases to trial and secure convictions of offenders. ICMEC will support public awareness of these actions through traditional and social media, as well as community outreach by the police, so as to create virtuous cycles of both increased incident reporting and deterrence to potential perpetrators.

Given the success of the dedicated Online Child Sexual Exploitation (OCSE) police units in other countries, ICMEC developed a Model Framework for the Establishment of Stand-Alone Police Units (SAPUs) to solely investigate OCSE. ICMEC will receive U.S. government funding to support the creation of OCSE-SAPUs where local authorities have shown the greatest readiness to establish such units and where there is a demonstrated need:

  1. Jakarta
  2. Surabaya
  3. Bali

[This is a one-year contract with the possibility to renew up to 5 years based on the evaluation of performance and results.]

ICMEC’s 60-month project will provide these police units with the necessary specialized hardware, software, training, and technical assistance to investigate, proactively and reactively, including effectively identifying victims. In order to ensure that cases can be brought to trial and successfully reach conviction and sentencing, ICMEC will also train prosecutors and judges in these provinces. ICMEC’s training is based on a victim-centric approach, including awareness to prevent revictimization through trauma-centric interview techniques. To this end, ICMEC will also help each of the OCSE-SAPU’s equip special child-friendly interview rooms.

The Country Director will be responsible for working day-to-day to set up and implement specific grant projects in the three specialized units with emphasis on providing technical assistance and support, and coordinating roundtables and training, under the direction and supervision of the Vice President of Partnerships & Training. The Country Director will also liaise with the Police Academies to have their trainers included in ICMEC training, in order to create a national police Train-the-Trainer program.

Furthermore, ICMEC’s extensive online, on-demand training programs for all those working in child protection (including healthcare providers, mental health providers, educators, social workers, as well as police, prosecutors, judges, immigration and customs officials, and students preparing to go into these fields) will be publicly available in Bahasa at no cost to the users in order to create a national training program. The Country Director for Indonesia will be instrumental in promoting that program.
