Hal tersebut berkaitan dengan partisipasi aktif yang memiliki keterkaitan fungsi satu sama lain untuk menjamin keberhasilan dalam menangani persoalan tindak pidana narkotika yang melibatkan adanya gotong royong antara aparat penegak hukum dengan masyarakat yang ada. Mengenai urusan ini, aparat penegak hukum telah menyediakan lembaga terkait dalam penyelesaian persoalan narkotika yang terjadi. Salah satu contohnya berupa adanya Badan Narkotika Nasional RI yang berupaya untuk mengurangi tingkat penggunaan narkotika melalui program Pencegahan, Pemberantasan, Penyalahgunaan dan Peredaran Gelap Narkotika (P4GN). Pada pelaksanaan P4GN ini tentu saja memiliki rintangan yang dilalui hingga akhirnya menciptkan dua kemungkinan yang terjadi yaitu berhasil atau tidaknya upaya tersebut. Dapat dicontohkan seperti judul yang diangkat oleh penulis bisa diibaratkan sebagai bentuk kegagalan dalam upaya tersebut. Namun dalam penelitian yang berdasarkan peraturan dan studi kasus yang terjadi saat ini, penulis berharap dengan adanya penjelasan tentang pidana mati yang menjadi salah satu bentuk konsekuensi yang akan digalakan ketika seseorang terlibat dalam tindak pidana narkotika itu sendiri guna mengurangi segala kemungkinan yang nantinya akan merusak generasi dinegeri ini.</p> Adinda Putri Ramadanti Rama Copyright (c) 2024 CONSEN: Indonesian Journal of Community Services and Engagement https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1198 Sun, 21 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Pendampingan Perencanaan Detail Engineering Design (DED) Masjid Pondok Pesantren Al Imam Asy Syafi’i Dumai Riau https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1208 <p>Desain Struktur dan Arsitektur merupakan hal terpenting dalam mendisain sebuah struktur yang kokoh dan nyaman.

The activity method used is training, by applying appropriate technology in the form of portable bioponds and drying machines to make dried maggot. The activity implementation period is November 26 to December 23, 2022. The results of the activity show the potential for increased income and environmental independence in managing organic waste through maggot. Before the PkM activity was carried out, the source of income from maggot only came from fresh maggot. After the PkM activity, there is an additional source of income from dried maggot products, with a range between Rp23 thousand - Rp30 thousand for every one kilogram of dried fresh maggot.</em> <em>The application of portable bioponds has increased the amount of fresh maggot production between 60 kilograms - 80 kilograms. The application of portable bioponds as maggot enlargement media has increased the amount of organic waste that is managed independently. Before the PkM activity, the amount of organic waste managed was 240 kilograms - 320 kilograms. After the PkM activity, the amount of managed waste increased to 360 kg - 480 kg. In general, it can be concluded that PkM activities through the application of technology in maggot cultivation carried out by the Trisakti University PkM Team at the Villa 1 Asri Waste Bank have succeeded in increasing community independence both in terms of economy and environment.</em></p> Sumiyarti Sumiyarti, Hartini Rahayu, Ratna Ningsih Ratna Copyright (c) 2024 CONSEN: Indonesian Journal of Community Services and Engagement https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1243 Wed, 14 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Productivity Improvement of Oyster Mushroom Cultivation by Utilizing Temperature Control on Baglog Steamer in Industrial Farming Area https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1030 <p>Indonesia adalah negara beriklim tropis dengan 2 musim yang memiliki kelebihan tanah subur sehingga menjadi faktor dalam bidang pertanian.

Before the adoption of this framework, business operators generally used conventional and traditional promotional methods. However, with the emergence of the digital era, traditional approaches have been replaced through digital marketing, involving marketing activities using various social media. The use of social media as a promotional strategy has become an optimal method to expand the market or reach more customers. Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) can expand the marketing of their products through digital platforms, especially on various social media channels such as TikTok and Instagram. It is hoped that this can accelerate the transformation of MSMEs in Indonesia towards the digital era. However, not all MSME products can be widely known by the public, and the main cause is the suboptimal utilization of social media as a promotional tool. This research aims to understand the benefits that make social media, especially TikTok and Instagram, effective promotional tools, especially for MSMEs. The method used in this research is a qualitative method. The utilization of social media, especially TikTok and Instagram, for business operators can provide advantages, including serving as a promotional or marketing tool, enabling the establishment of personal relationships with consumers, serving as a means of collecting consumer data, and conveying information or responses to consumers.</em></p> <p><strong><em>&nbsp;</em></strong></p> Sofia Dewi Copyright (c) 2024 CONSEN: Indonesian Journal of Community Services and Engagement https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1202 Wed, 14 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Optimizing Community Reading Parks “Hikari Library” through the Implementation of a Library Management System https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1221 <p class="p2"><em>The optimization of Community Reading Park (TBM) is one solution to stimulate and develop the reading interest of the Indonesian community, aiming to create an educated Indonesian society with a decent income to accelerate the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030. The TBM that partners with this Community Service (P2M) activity is the Hikari Library located in RW.13 / RT.04 Alamanda II Housing precisely on Taman Karya Ujung Street, Pekanbaru City. This TBM has been established since 2019. However, the management and utilization of this library have not been optimal. The hundreds of collections owned are not well-documented, and a retrieval system for the collections has not been implemented. Moreover, the collection service system is entirely manual and sometimes not documented, leading to many borrowed collections being lost and not returned. The proposed solution to the partner is the implementation of a library information system management to assist in the proper governance of the library. Based on pre-tests and post-tests distributed to librarians, it shows an improvement in understanding by 7,49%, and with a satisfaction level of 93,8 %. This Community Service program is conducted in several stages, including 1) pre-activity; 2) implementation; and 3) evaluation. </em></p> Arbi Haza Nasution, Winda Monika Copyright (c) 2024 CONSEN: Indonesian Journal of Community Services and Engagement https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1221 Thu, 01 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Training on Adjusting the Format Template for Writing Scientific Articles and How to Submit Them in Order to Improve the Quality of Student Scientific Work https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1271 <p><em>At this time students are required to be better able to develop themselves in writing scientific papers and publications.

Literasi digital mencakup keterampilan dalam mengevaluasi informasi secara kritis dan berkomunikasi secara <em>online. </em>Keterampilan atau pengetahuan dasar yang dibutuhkan untuk memanfaatkan literasi digital diantaranya dasar ilmu komputer, penggunaan internet, keamanan digital, kemampuan pemrosesan informasi, keterampilan komunikasi digital, kreativitas digital, pemahaman hak cipta, kemampuan masalah teknis, dan etika digital. UMKM berperan penting dalam perekonomian karena berkontribusi pada penciptaan lapangan kerja, pertumbuhan ekonomi lokal, dan inovasi bisnis. Pelaku UMKM kesulitan dalam mengembangkan produknya, dikarenakan kalah bersaing jika dipasarkan secara tradisional (<em>offline</em>). Oleh karena itu diperlukan dukungan dalam bentuk pelatihan, akses pasar yang lebih modern dan lebih luas, serta pendampingan bisnis yang kekinian. Pelatihan literasi digital dilakukan dengan cara observasi terlebih dahulu agar tepat sasaran, memberikan materi sesuai dengan kebutuhan dan menggunakan alat bantu teknologi seperti laptop, proyektor, serta <em>smartphone</em> untuk mempermudah pemahaman. Kemudian pendampingan, pendekatan praktik dan evaluasi sebagai umpan balik hasil pelatihan. Sehingga masyarakat pelaku UMKM bisa memahami perkembangan teknologi informasi dan kemunikasi serta bagaimana cara memanfaatkannya. Untuk lebih mematangkan pengetahuan sebaiknya dilakukan pelatihan secara berkala dengan pelatihan lanjutan seperti kreativitas konten atau desain grafis produk yang akan di pasarkan.</p> Miki Wijana Copyright (c) 2024 CONSEN: Indonesian Journal of Community Services and Engagement https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1166 Wed, 14 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Training on Marketplace Use For MSMEs as Digital Marketing Media In Cijambu Village https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1207 <p>Desa Cijambu merupakan sebuah desa yang berlokasi di wilayah Kecamatan Tanjungsari.

This practice poses challenges for fishermen in expanding their fishing production capacity, as procuring sufficient wood for larger boats becomes a significant hurdle. The Aceh Singkil Regency government has imposed restrictions on forest logging for industrial purposes. In response to this limitation, the community service team from Abulyatama University has proposed an alternative solution—exploring materials other than wood that can offer greater boat capacity. The implementation of this initiative involves hands-on training for fishermen and the evaluation of product quality. The step-by-step processes undertaken by fishing groups in boat construction include: (1) interpreting design drawings, (2) crafting molds, (3) applying gelcoat, (4) constructing boat bodies, (5) creating coolboxes, (6) finishing, and (7) conducting sea trials for the fishing boats. The tangible outcome of this endeavor is a fully functional product crafted by the fishing group. The community exhibited remarkable enthusiasm throughout the process, as the fishing group actively participated in every stage of boat construction. This training proved highly beneficial for the fishermen, who strongly desire continued guidance in future shipbuilding endeavors. Certificates were awarded to the fishermen upon completing the activity as a commendation for their commitment to the training process.</em></p> Yusrizal Muchlis, Cut Rahmawati, Amri Amin, Lindawati Lindawati, Muhammad Zardi, Meliyana Meliyana Copyright (c) 2024 CONSEN: Indonesian Journal of Community Services and Engagement https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://journal.irpi.or.id/index.php/consen/article/view/1231 Wed, 14 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000
