The Indonesian National Armed Forces (TNI), has settled its internal reorganization process, aimed at optimizing the effectiveness of its operation both in military and non-military functions, local media reported here on Wednesday.

The TNI Commander General Djoko Santoso said that the reorganization in the TNI was mandated by the presidential decree No. 10/2010.

The decree, he said, orders the TNI to improve the effectiveness of several TNI units by upgrading their status into autonomous units.

Those units are the Military Police, Strategic Study Center, Peacekeeping Mission Center, Rapid Reaction Unit Center, Disaster Rapid Response Unit. All of those units are under the control of TNI headquarters, he said.

The reorganization was also applied in the armed forces' units that comprised body fitness and the military history documentation, he added.

Besides that, under the reorganization program, the TNI also set up new units that comprised the Education and Training Center Command, Leadership Development Center and military police centers in the Navy and Air Forces headquarters, General Djoko Santoso added.
