The Singapore Police Force (SPF) is holding the Police Community Roadshow 2018 at three different locations across the island over three consecutive weekends, starting on 24 November 2018 and ending on 9 December 2018.

The series of roadshows aims to foster greater awareness of policing work and build stronger ties with the public.  Visitors to the roadshows can view a showcase of the latest technologies and equipment used by the SPF, including the Police drone, robots and weapons. They can also experience a mock-up crime scene and observe the investigative work by Police officers. In addition, visitors will get to view various demonstrations featuring officers from different Police units, and performances by the SPF band and the Police K-9 unit.
