SGSecure is a national movement to sensitise, train and mobilise Singaporeans to play a part to prevent and deal with a terrorist attack. It is our community’s response to safeguard our way of life against terrorism and community strife.
The threat of terrorism remains high. The recent terrorist attacks have taken the terrorism threat into a different phase. This new phase sees simultaneous attacks targeted at areas of mass congregations and soft targets such as concert halls and shopping malls.
Singapore is not immune to terrorism. In fact, the terrorism threat to Singapore has increased steadily over the past couple of years, coming closer to our shores. The current threat situation against Singapore is serious as we enter into a new phase of terrorism. Our security agencies will do their best to detect and prevent any terrorist attack but an attack on Singapore can still happen.
It is a matter of 'when' we are hit, not 'if'.
While the Government is fully committed to prevent an attack, it is ultimately the community which will defeat terrorism. Terrorists aim to inject fear and weaken the resilience and fabric of our society. They seek to pit different societal forces against one another and brew distrust among communities, thus bringing the society down.
There is, therefore, a strong and urgent need for the community to be fully aware of the terrorism threat which surrounds us. You can do your part in keeping Singapore safe and secure.
