JAKARTA, July 1 (Xinhua) -- Indonesian and Australian police have officially launched joint Cyber Crime Investigation Center, the Jakarta Post reported on Friday.

The center was opened by Indonesian National Police chief Gen. Timur Pradopo and Australian Federal Police Chief Tony Negus at the National Police headquarters in Jakarta on Thursday.

"Today, we launch the center, which will be equipped with tools needed to carry out cyber crime investigations," Timur said, adding that its communication technology equipment was being provided by the Australian government.

Of course, this (center) will improve our capacity to detect and (investigate cyber) crimes, particularly transnational crimes, he said.

Negus said the center would allow the National Police to deal with technology and IT-related crimes.

He added that the Australian police force was looking to forge cooperative agreements in its investigation of transnational crimes, not only in the region but also across the world.
