Transforming Policing: Innovations Unveiled in Singapore

With the theme “A Future-Ready Force for the Nation,” the recently held Singapore Expo featured a number of initiatives aimed at enhancing the capabilities of the Singapore Police Force (SPF) and ensuring the nation’s safety and security. It also featured cutting-edge technologies and innovative policing techniques.

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) and the Home Team Science and Technology Agency (HTX) worked together to make a tactical strike vehicle (TSV) to improve the police’s response to public order and public security incidents. This was done to improve the Special Operations Command’s tactical skills. It has a protecting mesh and a heavily armoured body to protect troops even more.

Drones can get around the normal security steps that are put in place to protect big events. The SPF and HTX have made a counter-drone system to stop this danger to public safety and security. A set of sensors helps find drones that aren’t supposed to be there. This lets the Police on the ground use small jammer guns to interfere with the drone’s control signal, stop its flight, and get it back for investigations.

The robots add to the police officers’ rounds and make it seem like the police are there all the time. The SPF will put security robots in more and more public places across Singapore.

The SPF, Central Narcotics Bureau, and HTX came up with the Automated Armoury System, which is a smart locker system that lets cops take out and return their sidearms on their own. With different authentication terminals, officers can get their sidearms and tasers and put them back at the same time. The Automated Armoury System also makes it easier to keep track of weapons because it can find mistakes and fix them.

The Community Engagement Robot, which was made by the SPF with help from the Home Team Science and Technology Agency and Ngee Ann Polytechnic, was one of the best parts of the Seminar. The Robot, which is also called Cody (Community Outreach BudDY), shares important lessons with the public through interactive videos and exercises. It can also talk in a number of local languages. Cody will be used at roadshows, events to get people involved in the community, and even patrols in public places.

Neighbourhood Police Centres (NPCs) will be redesigned to include self-service choices like self-help kiosks and lost property dropboxes that can be used 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This will help the police work more efficiently, get the most out of their resources, and use technology to better serve the community. Woodleigh NPC will be the first NPC to get a new look.

The Scam Public Education Office (SPEO), which was just set up, will lead efforts to teach people about scams and make them aware of them. It will also help the SPF reach more people with information about scams by forming partnerships with public and private organisations, making sure that anti-scam messages are uniform across different communication channels, and getting the community involved in spreading and making anti-scam messages and programmes.

Innovations in public safety provide numerous benefits, including increased efficiency, enhanced emergency response, proactive risk management, community engagement, effective crime prevention, increased officer safety, public awareness and education, cost savings, and adaptability to changing threats. By adopting these innovations, communities can make their residents’ environments safer and more secure.
