PM says technology can be used to strengthen efficiency of Home Team

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong says that technology, like CCTV cameras or wearable cameras, can be used to strengthen the efficiency of the Home Team. 

And the Police are experimenting with how this can be used. 

He had breakfast this morning with about 40 Home Team officers who were deployed during the Little India riot. 

The officers, all of whom were first responders to the riot, are from the Rochor Neighbourhood Police Centre, the SCDF, the Special Operations Command and Tanglin and Central Police Divisions. 

Mr Lee expressed his thanks and appreciation to the officers who responded to the riot. 

And he encouraged them to continue to do their duty as Singaporeans expect them to. 

"These are people who know what they do. The experience, some of them have been 20 years in the force, some of then not so long, they are NS men in their second year, well trained and they know what they are supposed to do, they have been drilled, practiced, they understand what the situation is, and I have a lot of respect, I was impressed by the way they knew what to do, it was planned and acted, it was not precipitous, or spur of the moment."

Mr Lee was accompanied by his wife, Madam Ho Ching, Second Minister for Home Affairs S Iswaran, Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew, who's also MPfor Moulmein-Kallang GRC, Lui Tuck Yew as well as MP Denise Phua.
