SINGAPORE 6 June 2011- The Ang Mo Kio Police Division won the "Best Land Division Award", which was presented during Police Day on Monday (6 June 2011) evening.
It's the second such award for the division in three years and was given for its performance in areas such as investigation and professionalism.
The division has seen some high-profile cases in the last year.
One such case was that of the "Heartbeat Molester", a 48-year-old man who outraged the modesty of 28 girls in 11 years.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Hsu Sin Yun, Commander, Ang Mo Kio Police Division, said: "As with any police unit or any organisation ... we will recognise the good work, the good arrests, the good service that officers provide to the community ... But more importantly, is to appeal to the officers' sense of mission, their passion for police work to help the community keep their premises, their areas free from crime.
"And I think that's a much stronger motivator to our officers compared to whatever awards we can give them."
He added that seeing the arrests of criminals and the community feeling safer in their environment pushed police officers to work that much harder for the community.
The Singapore Catholic High School was founded in 1935. The school had a humble beginning within the premises of the Church of St Peter and Paul at Queen Street. Today it is one of the top schools in Singapore.
Many of us, including students, teachers, staff, parents of students, alumni, and many others, work very hard to make the school as it is today. We are The Catholic High People.
