Jump to: navigation, search

Law enforcement in Singapore comes under the direct purview of the Singapore Police Force, the main Government agency entrusted with the maintenance of law and order in Singapore. Assisting the police force, are a range of governmental as well as private sector organisations and companies who engage in specialised roles and allow the main force to concentrate on their main public policing roles. In addition, the strong emphasize on community policing since the 1980s has attempted to promote a culture in which the man in the street can partake and contribute directly in law enforcement efforts.
