To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press are jointly launching the Singapore Chronicles series in 2015. This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject.

POLICING
Singapore is simultaneously praised for its extraordinary safety and criticised for its draconian laws. This primer seeks to explain Singapore’s achievements in creating a law-abiding society by making public peace and wellbeing as well as security of life, limb and property a centrepiece of the good life. To that end, tough laws exist against crimes that attract capital and corporal punishment, narcotics, corruption, commercial crime and cybercrime. This book also examines the role played by the prison system, internal security laws, and border security in the state’s overall approach to preserving a peaceful and secure nation.
