Since World Health Organization (WHO) declared a pandemic all over the world, including Indonesia, the whole living system seems to be experiencing “reconstruction”. Not a single system has been able to be maintained, so that every government reformulates the system, including the criminal law system. The process of enforcing criminal law is always overshadowed by the slogan “Salus Populi Suprema Lex Esto”. In the end, the word “crowd” as a word that has a primordial meaning, in this pandemic era it has become a “favorite” word which is often used as a normative proposition. However, the phenomenon of ‘swarming’ itself received a response in the context of law enforcement, which was varied. The government, in this case the National Police of the Republic of Indonesia, always rationalizes both active and passive (silent), producing knowledge to determine which ones are being acted upon and which are not. Therefore, this study aims to uncover the ideological aspects of the double standard phenomenon in the criminal law enforcement process. Restrictions problems in this study relates to “How the Indonesian National Police in carrying out police functions in a pandemic era based on the concept of Trichotomy Relationships?” This research uses the socio legal method by using an approach from Law Science and from Social and Political Sciences. The results of this study indicate that there is a pattern of law enforcement work by rationalizing a decision that relies on the authority. Authority holders carry out the production of knowledge in order to provide juridical legitimacy through their power and authority.
