Police Chiefs from the ASEAN regions were present at the event. They are meeting in Singapore for the ASEANAPOL Annual Conference from 2 to 7 June, where they will discuss new developments in law enforcement and trans-national issues.
This is the Mission of our Singapore Police Force and its pledge:
The Mission of the Singapore Police Force is to uphold the law, maintain order and keep the peace in the Republic of Singapore.
We pledge to be loyal and true
to the Police Service
and the Republic of Singapore.
We pledge to uphold the law,
to protect life and property,
to prevent and detect crime.
We pledge to discharge our responsibilities
without fear of favour
regardless of race, language or religion.
We pledge to strive for excellence,
to be proactive
and to exercise initiative in our duties.
We pledge to serve our community and our country
and to be courteous and humane
in our dealings with every fellowman.
I'm keeping this Police Pledge with me always and I'm going to show it to those Singaporean police officers who seemed to have forgotten their pledge. I have my own police stories to share with my readers.
