Singapore Police Force unveil new systems and technology to help fight crime

New systems and technology to help fight crime, a new Police Divisional Headquarters in Woodlands, as well as two new Neighbourhood Police Centres in Geylang and Bidadari to be set up in the next five years. 

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) announced these at its annual Workplan Seminar held at the Home Team Academy. 

Among the new crime-fighting tools unveiled today - the ProVision 2 Body Scanner. 

The unit can detect a broad range of concealed objects, such as non-metallic materials like liquid, gel, and even paper on passengers. 

Previously, passengers used to walk through metal detectors at checkpoints such as airports. 

The police are set to roll out a trial in June at Terminal 3. 

Other uses of technology include the 3D Laser Scanner, used at crime scenes. 

The scanner captures 3D images which eliminates human error during crime-scene documentation. 

With this system, it takes only six minutes -- compared to one full day -- to capture crime scene footage.
