Abstract: This research aims to determine the effects of Covid-19 on law enforcement in the application of large-scale social restrictions policy in Jakarta. This research used a quantitative approach in the form of a survey. The sample was 200 residents of Jakarta who were randomly selected using Google Form. The quantitative data analysis was structural equation modelling (SEM) analysis based on partial least square (PLS) to answer the research hypothesis. A significant relationship is the relationship between effectiveness on obedience, the relationship between obedience on awareness, and the relationship between the effectiveness of awareness mediated by obedience. People with too much confidence tend to violate the application of LSSR policy. Besides, people who are too confident in obeying LSSR regulations will tend not to realise the importance of applying LSSR policies. The new findings are the use of models involving quadratic relationships, where the higher one's trust, is not necessarily always increase obedience and awareness. With a level above 76%, public obedience and awareness will tend to decrease.

Keywords: Covid-19; obedience; awareness; trust; effectiveness; large-scale social restriction; LSSR; Jakarta.
