SINGAPORE: Punggol constituency saw the opening of a new neighbourhood police centre (NPC).
Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean opened the Punggol NPC, making it the 35th across the island.
The opening of the NPC is to ensure the safety and security of a fast—growing neighbourhood.
The new NPC also introduced the Community Policing System (COPS).
Under COPS, more officers will be deployed on foot and bicycle patrols around the constituency, increasing police presence.
Residents also had a chance to try out some police vehicles which they have often seen on the roads.
