Posted by temasektimes on August 26, 2012

The Home Team should be reassured that Singaporeans generally trust and appreciate their work, declared Deputy Prime Minister and Home Affairs Minister Teo Chee Hean.

Speaking at the Home Affairs Uniformed Services Scholarships Award ceremony on Saturday, Mr Teo said based on a recent survey by the Home Affairs Ministry done between December 2011 and May 2012, Singaporeans generally appreciate the work of the Home Team in building a safe and secure environment.

More than 2,000 Singapore citizens and Permanent Residents took part in the survey.

“Our officers deal with issues that concern life and death. This requires them to be diligent and disciplined in carrying out their duties, and not buckle under pressure or take the easy way out. Our officers are often called upon to apply a multi-disciplinary approach, deploying both hard and soft skills to deal with complex situations,” Mr Teo said.

He added the findings reassures Home Team officers that their service is appreciated and they have earned the trust of Singaporeans.

        Where did he gets the info to propagate his speech,Theres no where else but from SPH the one-sided printing house which must be repealed

        The statements and survey made wasn’t fair in all aspects as it came from a monopoly printing house and waggy tail tame pet dogs at this point of time

        I think he’s flattering and sell-short the HomeTeam

        Should Singapore have a second Media then perhaps he could have Singaporeans undivided attention

      The Home Team isn’t just the cops. Our firefighters and paramedics are also part of the team.
      The firemen put out the fires at Marine Parade, Singapore Poly and NUS. Have they still not earned your trust?

    Hmmmm…you must give credit to the home team, they did their job diligently no doubt, but only when Singaporeans are concerned. When it comes to foreigners, especially those obnoxious and intimidating caucasians, they will just wrap their tails between their legs and walk away as though nothing happened!

If they dare to put out the questionaire and the answers taht they receive for all to see, then we can also move the data to say they did not do a good job….The failure is is for all to see….
