Suhirwan ., Lukman Yudho Prakoso, Wuri Retno Martani


The plan in relocating the new capital of Indonesia in Kalimantan must also be accompanied by preparing a new optimal defense system to anticipate all forms of threats, especially from the sea.  The purpose of this study is to find the best marine defense strategy, in order to secure the New Capital City. This study uses the theory of public policy implementation of George Edward III, with the subfactors of communication transmission, communication clarity and communication consistency. Method used in this research is phenomenology descriptive qualitative.  The results oh the analysis and discussion show that in the transmission subfactor, communication is only limited to each internal law enforcement entity,which there are no tactical operational transmissions at sea.  In communication clarity subfactor, the communication between law enforcement entities is also not optimal since the existence of law enforcement entities in Makassar waters is incomplete with the infrastructure as well as other facilities, especially related to the communication equipment issue. Meanwhile, in subfactor of communication consistency, the existence of regulations on each entity as the operational basis at sea requires an effective and efficient bureaucratic procedure. Therefore, the conclusion of this research is that there is a great interest associated with securing a new capital city in East Kalimantan. Communication among the law enforcement entities in Makassar sea region, especially those who is dealing with ALKI II Makassar must be a priority. In order to optimize the performance effectively and efficiently, hardware, software, and brainware must be integrated. Hardware is the physical equipment of communication infrastructure, software is a regulation which strengthens the integration of communication systems and brainware is the conditiioning of personnel from every law enforcement entity at sea that there are very important national interests as priorities above the interests of sectoral egos.
