    This article aims to investigate the motivations of the Indonesian National Police (Polri) with regard to politics. It focuses on political concessions to the Polri, the wide-ranging roles of the Polri, and internal dynamics within the police institution. This article examines the beneficial relationship between incentives for promotion within the police ranks and political intervention. Additionally, it shows how President Joko Widodo uses a mutually beneficial relationship with the police to suppress political opponents. This article demonstrates that incentives for promotion offered to mid-ranking police officers also contribute to criminalization of activists, opposition sympathizers, and political opponents, which is heavily linked to the decline of democracy in Indonesia. Many eligible officers, including 500 chief commissioners (Komisaris Besar or Kombes), compete for promotions to one-star general or brigadier general (Brigadir Jenderal, or Brigjen); however, the available positions are limited. This article describes the strong connection between this promotion bottleneck and the police intervention in politics that has led to the decline of democracy in Indonesia. Overall, this article enhances the understanding about the democratic regression in Indonesia and adds to arguments presented in previous studies.
