WHY DID PAP ACCEPT DISGRACED POLICEMAN LIONEL DE SOUZA AS A MEMBER?

Lionel De Souza applied for promotion to be Inspector and he cleared his 1st interview with the department. After that he was sent for his 2nd interview with the promotion board and his OC told him that the interview with board was only a formality. He immediately jumped the gun and went ahead to make 5 sets of senior office uniforms. Later he learnt that he flopped his interview and became a laughing stock.

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.

He masturbated to a photograph of his female colleague, and collected the semen in a small bottle. He recorded himself doing this on his handphone. He then returned to his office and waited for her to leave her desk temporarily. When she did, Sim mixed his semen with the drinking water in her water bottle. He also recorded this. As the water bottle was tinted red the victim did not realise the water was no longer clear.

SINGAPORE POLICE FORCE: WE WILL CONTINUE TO HIRE PERMANENT RESIDENTS

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.

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.

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.

Do we need to revamp the Singapore Police Force?

When CP says that we need an extra of 1,000 police officers to boost the police force, I wonder what sort of police officers he is referring to? Definitely not those auxiliary police officers outsourced to desperate cheap labourers from neighboring countries when they simply came here for the better wages and using the law as a pretext in its high handed approach to tekan locals. 1,000 new recruits in the Special Ops Command (SOC) or in the Land Divisions or simply just manning those police posts in HDB estates? What sort of extra 1,000 police officers? All with diplomas or university degrees and wearing the Sgt rank on the first day of police work? Veterans always opined that ranks have to be earned the hard way and never given freely losing its intrinsic value.

Policemen to wear body cameras – Good Idea. What about Interrogations, Investigations and Interviews?

I think this is an excellent idea. I had previously wondered why we weren't following certain police forces elsewhere, which have cameras mounted on the police vehicles dashboards to record activities whilst patrolling or stopping cars and persons. This measure goes 1 better, instead of just in a car which can only record from 1 angle (the front) and on a road, a body camera can capture and record activity anywhere. I'm sure we have a law that forbids people from recording or sharing their recordings of policemen in the execution of their duty. Or the police can seize such recordings on the pretext it interferes or compromises their investigations. So to resolve this in an ever increasing digital world, a video recording by a policemen will help, provided protocols are in place to prevent their tampering, if and when it becomes necessary to view it.
