Bishan-Toa Payoh conservancy workers roped in as Police 'eyes and ears'

SINGAPORE: Conservancy workers of Bishan-Toa Payoh Town Council will be roped in as the 'eyes and ears' of the Police to help look out for suspicious persons or activities.

The initiative is part of Project 3Es (Estate, Eyes and Ears), a joint collaboration between the Singapore Police Force and the Bishan-Toa Payoh Town Council.

About 350 conservancy workers have attended training sessions conducted by officers from Bishan and Toa Payoh Neighbourhood Police Centres.

They were taught to look out for tell-tale signs of suspicious characters, such as loan shark runners, as well as details to note when providing information to the Police.

MP for Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC and Chairman of Bishan-Toa Payoh Town Council, Mr Hri Kumar Nair, said the workers can play an important role, as they are familiar with the neighbourhood.

He hopes that they will help to make the neighbourhood safer and more secure.
