Preserving peace and order is essential in every society. One way to preserve peace and order is impeding crimes. Crimes should be fought so that the population can rest easy and peacefully. If crimes are widespread, massive unrest will happen. Every government is doing its best to appease the population by modernizing and upgrading their police force. In this case, Singapore Police Force (SPF) declared that they will undertake new initiatives to fight crime after their annual Workplan Seminar. The upgrade of SPF will make the solving and deterring of crimes faster and easier.
The annual Workplan Seminar last May 5, 2013 includes new plans and systems for the SPF. Here’s an overview of the Workplan:
Additional police centres
SPF presented that they will set up another six centres by the end of the year. Aside from that, the force is planning to set up Police Divisional Headquarters and Neighbourhood Police Centres in the next years. Police centres are very crucial. If it is visible, offenders will surely think twice to commit a crime.
SPF is aiming increase visibility with the help of foot and bicycle patrols every day.
SPF will install ProVision 2 Body Scanner that can spot many concealed objects like metals and non metals (liquid, paper, etc.).
3D Laser Scanners will be provided. These scanners can process and document a crime scene for only six minutes compared to one full day if humans do it; it can eliminate human errors. It will make the process and documentation of crime scenes efficient.
V Scope+ scanner
This scanner can effectively capture and identify images underneath cars. It will be used at checkpoints.
