Be Part of the Community Watch Scheme (CWS)

Developed in close collaboration with the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC), the CWS aims to build an informed and vigilant community and encourages members of the community to be actively involved in protecting yourselves, your family and loved ones. The CWS requires minimal commitment and allows flexible involvement. When you sign up for CWS, you will be updated on the latest crime information, alerts and advisories. You are encouraged to share this information with your family and friends to raise their awareness. You will have access to events and training to enhance your knowledge and skills. If you are interested to do more, you can also work closely with the Police on relevant activities and initiatives that promotes the safety and security of your community. 

The CWS is a move from the geographical-based approach to an interest-based approach that seeks to engage and involve more members of the community in the safety and security of their communities. It is a broad-based entry level scheme that brings together various existing SPF watch groups under one umbrella scheme. For instance, Vehicles On Watch and Riders on Watch which are existing watch groups that were formed with the same intent, will be subsumed under the Transport category of CWS. CWS is structured into five broad categories, namely Home, Work/Learning, Transport, Lifestyle and Cyber. Various interest groups are formed under each category. You may sign up for any of the interest groups to receive alerts and crime information in your areas of interest. 

Sign up for the CWS to help us build an empowering community where everyone can partner the Singapore Police Force in ensuring a safe and secure Singapore!
