NATIONAL POLICE CADET CORPS DAY COMMEMORATION, 7 MAY 2015

The National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC) was founded on 8 May 1959 with the establishment of a pilot unit in Bartley Secondary School. In May 1985, the first NPCC Day Observance Ceremony was held to commemorate the founding of NPCC. Since then, 7 May, the eve of the founding of NPCC, has been designated as NPCC Day. It is the day where all members of the Corps gather and commemorate the founding of NPCC.

Dear Officers and Cadets of NPCC,

Introduction

1. The National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC) has come a long way since its humble beginning in 1959, with the first NPCC unit set up at Bartley Secondary School. NPCC has grown to be one of the largest youth uniformed organisations in Singapore. Today, we celebrate our 56th Anniversary.

Partnership with the Singapore Police Force (SPF)

2. The NPCC collaborates with the Singapore Police Force to promote community safety and security in our community. This enhances the appreciation of the role education plays in promoting security.

3. Through its wide array of programmes, NPCC engages its members to create realistic learning experiences and personal growth to fulfil the Corps’ Mission. In recent years, the Corps has progressively incorporated more Police-based training. This includes the revised Police Knowledge course (in 2012), the Community Safety and Security – Police Youth Ambassador Programme (in 2013), and the Unarmed Tactics course (in 2014). The Corps will also be adding the .38 revolver to the existing .22 shooting experience for our cadets.

4. This year, NPCC cadets can also look forward to the enhanced Crime Scene Investigation (in short CSI) training programme. The new programme incorporates more hands-on experience in crime scene preservation as well the use of fingerprint dusting kits and ultraviolet devices to gather evidence. With the help of qualified trainers, the cadets can look forward to learn about the CSI processes in the SPF.

Moving Forward

5. It is vital for NPCC to build on each success to offer more meaningful and engaging programmes to meet the rising aspirations of our cadets. Therefore, NPCC is gathering members’ feedback on current and new programmes that may be of interest to members. The survey results will help us review existing programmes and design new ones to take the overall NPCC experience to greater heights.

Closing cum Appreciation

6. On behalf of the NPCC Council, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to the School Leaders, Teacher Officers, Police Officers and volunteers of NPCC for their invaluable contributions and selfless support.

7. With our officers and cadets putting in concerted efforts to further enhance the NPCC learning experiences, I am sure we will make 2015 yet another enriching year for all. I wish all NPCC officers and cadets a happy and meaningful NPCC Day! Thank you.
