Want to be a volunteer police officer?

In career, there's a lot to gain from volunteering.

Volunteering is a great learning opportunity. There's no better way to learn than through experience; learning in volunteering is experiential.

But of course, more than anything else, volunteering is fulfilling. More fulfilling than most public service careers, even. That's a fact. Learning new things while helping the society for the better: Singapore recognises how much good this option is.

How fulfilling? We've recently interviewed someone from the Volunteer Special Constabulary (VSC) of the Singapore Police Force (SPF) for Industry Focus. Read it to know your answer. VSC positions are the best when it comes to satisfaction in the government field.

Considered an important component of the SPF, VSC officers are vested with equal powers of a police officer and the opportunity to enforce law and order in Singapore. Ms. Neo Fung Leng an officer from VSC of Tanglin Police Division, has told us "Ever since becoming a VSC officer, I've become a more confident person; I have developed greater alertness and fitness, and become more aware of my surroundings, all of which are useful skills that I can apply to my personal and work lives as well."

Want to be a volunteer police office? Fung Leng strongly encourages her fellow Singaporeans to join them. The requirements? Not at all heavy: application, 9 months of basic non-residential training (basic policing and legal knowledge e.g. street craft, firearms, drills and unarmed combat), and deployment.
