O-LEVEL HOLDERS NOW SENIOR POLICE OFFICERS

DEPUTY Superintendents of Police (DSP) Roy Lim and Khamisah Talip never dreamt they would become senior police officers with just their O-level qualifications to their names. But after more than a dozen years on the force, DSP Lim made history through his investigation of three murders involving the discovery of body parts, while DSP Khamisah tackled the case of a white tiger at the Singapore Zoo which mauled a cleaner to death.

IVY SINGH-LIM: SEND OUR POLICEMEN TO OTHER COUNTRIES TO CONTROL RIOTS

I would propose that we send our police officers to neighbouring countries to assist in controlling their protests instead. This achieves the purpose of practical training without the downsides of protests: Economic and social disruption as well as a fall in productivity. In the absence of public protests here, real-life experience in other countries could give officers opportunities to improve their knowledge. This would increase our forces’ readiness to do their jobs as protectors, instead of waiting for a big attack from an enemy.

I WAS CAUGHT SPEEDING

I was involved in a Court Case for speeding - I had exceeded 40 km/h driving at 110+ on a 60km/h road. It was after 10PM and there were very few cars on the road, so I stepped on it wanting to get back home quick. A week later, I received a nasty letter of summons from Singapore Traffic Police asking me to attend Court. At the Sub Court, there were loads of other people in the same boat as me.
Thankfully, I was fined just $500 and slapped with a 12 points Demerit.

[YOUR LETTERS] CAN SINGAPOREANS TRUST ICA AND THE SINGAPORE POLICE FORCE?

It is more worrying that shortly after the Mercedes gate crash incident, a video of the incident began circulating on the internet. The video, can be seen here was obviously recorded from a mobile phone in a ICA Ops Room that monitors security footage. To me, this is a serious breach of trust by the check point authorities. Despite the promise of an investigation, this incident happened more than 3 months ago, but neither the SPF nor the ICA have given Singaporeans an update of the "leak" which happened in a supposedly controlled & secured environment; but when PAP's political powers are under threat, the SPF acted swiftly and managed to capture the teenagers.

[YOUR LETTERS] PINOYS POLICE PRIME MINISTER

Do the Pinoys really think that they can do as they please in Singapore to the extent of disregarding our Public Order Act which stipulates that a permit is required for any type of public assembly or procession? And they even intend to draw a crowd of 10,000 when it illegal even for one person to protest outside of Hong Lim Park. If it is so easy to just organise a gathering in Singapore (outside of Hong Lim Park), then our opposition politicians like Chee Soon Juan and activists like Gilbert Goh will have a field day organising protests every single day already lah!

Yesterday, Liao Jiali, 30, and Wei Yongjiao, 25, were each jailed for four years after admitting to two counts of housebreaking and theft by night involving $229,400.

FORMER POLICE OFFICER: I DO NOT RESPECT THE NEW POLICE OFFICERS ANYMORE

When I joined the police force in 1983 with full A level qualification, I had to start off as a police constable. After 7 years, I got my corporal rank. Another 3 years of hell in investigation before I was given the Sgt rank. Today, the ranks are given freely as if it’s lelong sale in a pasar malam. When I had my recent encounter with the young police Sgt and a corporal, I had a hard time telling them that I could write a better statement rather than him recording my statement. But they refused and accused me of interfering in their police investigation! What a langgar situation. My respect for those newly minted police officers is lost.

TWO BOYS ARRESTED FOR IMPERSONATING AS POLICE OFFICERS

Police arrested two teens, aged 15 and 16, for posing as police officers and demanding their victims surrender their mobile phones and ez-link cards to them. The duo were caught after the victims, who are two students, made a police report on April 1 saying that they were approached and checked by two persons who identified themselves as police officers. They were told to surrender their mobile phones and ez-link cards and wait while the two "officers" returned to their vehicle.

COMMISSIONER OF POLICE NG JOO HEE: "LACK OF MANPOWER IN GEYLANG"

Please have these Policemen clear up those street hookers in Geylang instead of being party spoilers in a soccer match.

SINGAPORE POLICE FORCE: HIRING OF POLICE OFFICERS

Beyond this, the SPF also ensures that recruited officers are able to carry out their duties effectively through a robust six-month training programme for police officers and nine months for senior officers. We will continue to recruit good candidates from various talent pools, such as graduating students from the polytechnics and junior colleges, and mid-career job switchers, to meet our manpower requirements.
