SEMARANG – Diponegoro University and the National Narcotics Agency (BNN) of Indonesia held a signing of memorandum of understanding as a form of collaborative efforts to prevent and deal with drug crimes, Tuesday (9/24), at the Undip Faculty of Psychology, Tembalang.

He is also agreed to be one of the channels to spread the anti-narcotics movement through the voice from campus.

“Regarding the narcotics issue, we welcome them well because we also don’t want our students to be exposed to it. If there is something that needs to be voiced from the campus about narcotics, we are ready to become one of the voices for the anti-narcotics movement because this is also a part of our duty. ” Said Prof. Dr. Yos Johan Utama, SH, M.Hum.

Later we expect that the campus can evaluate and include them in the curriculum of each faculty. The second is for community service from our students which we can be optimized. Likewise, we also hope that there will be students that write a thesis or dissertation surrounding the issue of narcotic drugs. ” Explained the Police Commissioner General Drs. Heru Winarko, S.H.
