Abstract

By using medico-legal outlooks, the focus of this research is the structure, function and role of the Dikyasa
Unit as part of law enforcement by the Police. This focus is normatively found in Law Number 22 of 2009
concerning Road Traffic and Transportation. There are two problems, first, what is the structure, function
and role of the Dikyasa Unit and what are the two social and personal factors that affect the function and role
of the Dikyasa Unit. To analyze this problem, a research was conducted in the Legal Area of the Semarang
Police as an alternative legal study that positions the law in a broader community context. The research
findings show that firstly, the Dikyasa Unit is in charge of fostering community participation and traffic
education and secondly there are social and personal factors that affect the function and role of the dikyasa
unit.
