Village fund is the realization of granting villages’ rights to accelerate the development processes in their area in order to improve their social welfares. However, the village fund distribution and allocation, also known as village fund management, have experienced obstacles and misuses, often leading to criminal offences. One of the ideas to solve such issues is to involve all Bhabinkamtibmas officers (police non-commissioned officers or police sergeants who are in-charged of couching security and public order in villages or certain areas) in order to assist and supervise the village fund management. The purposes of this research are to examine the implementation of the MOU signed by the Villages, Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration Ministry and Indonesian National Police regarding the involvement of Bhabinkamtibmas officers in assisting and supervising the village fund management as well as getting a picture of competencies needed by Bhabinkamtibmas officers in assisting and supervising the village fund management. The research employs a quantitative approach supported by quantitative data using a case study. Data is obtained by conducting several Forum Discussion Groups (FGD) and interviews. In addition, questionnaires are distributed to 592 respondents taken from Jakarta Metropolitan Police Region, Central Java Police Region, East Kalimantan Police Region and Jambi Police Region. The results of the research show that Bhabinkamtibmas officers’ assistance in managing village funds is still ineffective due to the fact that assistance activities are carried out at the same time with the moment of delivering other police services as the main tasks of the Bhabinkamtibmas officers and most of Bhabinkamtimbas officers prefer having social competencies than other competencies in assisting and supervising the village fund management.
