Public Order (Additional Temporary Measures) Bill 2014
The Public Order (Additional Temporary Measures) Bill was introduced for Second Reading in Parliament on 18 Feb 2014. Following the riot that occurred in Little India on 8 Dec 2013, proactive measures were taken by the Police and other Government agencies to address factors that could have contributed to, or aggravated the incident. These measures have helped to stabilise the situation, instil confidence, and been broadly accepted by many stakeholders. This Public Order (Additional Temporary Measures) Bill 2014 will allow Police to continue to take calibrated measures to maintain public order and calm in Little India. The Bill would also provide our law enforcement agencies sufficient and effective means to deal and defuse similar situations that threaten public order.
