SPF Training Safety Symposium 2022

When it comes to training safety, we all have a part to play. The inaugural Singapore Police Force (SPF) Training Safety Symposium 2022 was held on 6 October 2022 with the theme “Training Safety is Everyone’s Responsibility.” Attended by over 420 officers, the Symposium allowed for the sharing of best practices in the field of safe and effective training.

NS55: Generations of Strength

Since it was institutionalised in 1967, National Service (NS) has become one of the pillars of Singapore’s security. To commemorate 55 years of NS, in 2022, the SPF took part in a series of events to recognise the contributions of National Servicemen from the Home Team and Singapore Armed Forces.

Finally, Special Thanks to Our Dedicated Officers on the Ground!

In 2022, Singapore once again secured the top spot on Gallup’s Global Law and Order Index. As always, our officers were steadfast in their duties, giving their best while knowing that at any moment they might be thrust into extraordinary situations to save lives. In June 2022, what started as a routine night shift duty turned into an unforgettable evening for two Ground Response Force officers from Woodlands West Neighbourhood Police Centre. First to arrive at a HDB unit on fire, they didn’t hesitate and rescued two toddlers from the inferno. Read on to find out what happened!
