SINGAPORE POLICE FORCE: WE WILL CONTINUE TO HIRE PERMANENT RESIDENTS

Police are maintaining current recruitment policy

We refer to the letters by Ms Wendy Soh and Mr Arthur Lim (“Before deciding on hiring foreigners as cops, consider these issues”, May 6; “Close monitoring system needed if we let foreigners join police force”, May 7).

Other than the Gurkha Contingent, the police today recruit Singaporeans as regular officers. A small number of permanent residents (PRs) who have shown commitment to serve are also recruited.

The police also have PRs who are serving their National Service and as volunteers in the Volunteer Special Constabulary.

The police are maintaining our current recruitment policy.
