This research was motivated by the rampant conflict between traditional martial arts (silat) organizations at the Jombang Resort Police due to the inadequate competence of Bhabinkamtibmas. Therefore, this study aims to analyze the competence of Bhabinkamtibmas in preventing social conflicts of this type. A qualitative approach with the field research method was used in this study. The research sources were related parties from the Jombang Police, and data collection techniques included interview techniques, document review, and observation, reinforced by focus group discussions and competency tests. The research found that the general competency profile of Bhabinkamtibmas in terms of knowledge, skills, and attitudes is still insufficient. Additionally, the conflict is mostly triggered by silat organizations with a large following. The main factors causing conflict are differences in identity and the doctrine of solidarity. The study concludes that professional competency of Bhabinkamtibmas is determined not only by knowledge and skill aspects, but also by other invisible aspects, such as motives, traits, concepts, and the characteristics of the Bhabinkamtibmas assignment area. Both general and professional competencies of Bhabinkamtibmas in preventing conflicts between silat organizations are limited, and the most significant influencing factor is the initiative of Bhabinkamtibmas and their direct superiors.
