The Singapore Police Force (SPF) has launched its first Police Heritage Trail on 26 November 2020 to commemorate 200 years of policing in Singapore.
The Police Heritage Trail, consisting of nine sites, marks the Force’s contributions in policing this city-state from its infancy to its rise to prominence as a highly developed nation. Starting from the first police office by the Singapore River, to key police establishments located in the civic district of Singapore, the trail reflects the developments in policing since the 1800s.
The trail which is marked by a physical marker, starts from the Singapore River near the Asian Civilisations Museum Green. Visitors can also explore a permanent exhibition at the Kreta Ayer Neighbourhood Police Post (NPP) which provides information about the trail and an insight into the historic area around the NPP. Please refer to Annex A for more information on the trail.
The Police Heritage Trail’s companion guide and map can be found online at https://www.roots.gov.sg/places/places-landing/trails/Police-Heritage-Trail on National Heritage Board’s heritage portal, Roots.sg.
