National Police Cadet Corps Day 2013

May 7, 2013



Dear Officers and Cadets of NPCC

1. Since the first National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC) unit was set up in 1959, the Corps has grown significantly and today we have NPCC units in more than 150 secondary schools. Last year, we embarked on an envisioning exercise to review our NPCC mission and vision and in November 2012, we communicated our new mission and vision to all NPCC members.

2. Our new mission is “To develop our members to be active citizens and community leaders, by working in partnership with the Singapore Police Force to fight crime and keep Singapore safe”. Our mission demonstrates our commitment in developing our members to be future leaders with the values and skills to contribute to the nation. I am confident this will enable us to achieve our vision which is “To become the best youth organisation in Singapore, one that actively helps to make Singapore the safest place in the world”.

3. In line with our new mission and vision, we also reviewed our programmes and we will have new enrichment electives this year to better engage our cadets. These new initiatives include the NPCC Unarmed Tactics course, .38 Revolver Live Shoot and the revised Police Knowledge programme. Cadets who successfully complete all our programmes will also stand to be conferred the prestigious National Youth Achievement Bronze Award at the end of their second year in NPCC.

4. Our cadets have been actively involved in keeping our schools and community safe from crime through their Values in Action (VIA) programme. Together with the Neighbourhood Police Centres, cadets help to spread crime prevention messages to raise awareness of safety and security concerns in the community. NPCC cadets from Junyuan Secondary School, for example, complemented the policing efforts of Tampines Neighbourhood Police Centre by engaging and sharing with residents crime prevention measures in relation to motor-vehicle theft, snatch theft and housebreaking. These commendable contributions by our cadets help keep our communities and Singapore safe.

5. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to School Leaders, Teacher Officers and Volunteers who continue to provide strong support to NPCC units in schools. To all our NPCC members, thank you for your dedication and commitment. Together,we can achieve our aspiration of making NPCC the best youth organisation in Singapore – one that actively helps to make Singapore the safest place in the world.

6. Thank you.

Jurongville Secondary School NPCC Unit
