The research aimed to enhance the Police's performance in delivering exemplary community service and harmonize the National Police's structure with the Village/District Level Regional Government. The study employed qualitative description with SWOT and ASOCA Analysis. In Bandung Regency, there's a notable security vulnerability. The data indicates: 1) Potential disturbances exceed 70%, 2) Disorder threshold surpasses 60%, and 3) Actual disruptions are above 30%. Addressing this and to achieve structural synchronization between the National Police and the Regional Government, a strategy is devised titled "Structural Reform of the Police Organization at the Village Government Level." This aims to optimize police performance, resonating with the National Police's 2005-2025 Grand Strategy. SWOT analysis reveals 1) Strength in Leadership, 2) Weakness in Organizational Structure, 3) Opportunities within the Legal Framework, and 4) Threats from misalignment with the Village's Regional Government. ASOCA Analysis emphasizes several factors. Internally, it points out the Police Leadership's ability and members' loyalty. It stresses the importance of harnessing police resources and an Organizational Performance Improvement Program. There's a highlight on the intellectual prowess of police members and their potential to act creatively. Externally, the community's aspiration for better police service is noted. The Bandung Regency's distinct culture and traditions play a role. Challenges persist, like the misalignment of the organizational structure with geographical realities and limited flexibility in local Police management. Community participation and educational levels remain concerns. Lastly, the Village Police follows a "Line and Staff Organization" model. This aligns with the higher-level organizational structure, emphasizing task decentralization and role clarity, ensuring a robust hierarchy and efficient task delegation.
