​ ​Home Team Journal

​Home Team Journal Issue No. 1 

The inaugural issue, Managing Crises at the Homefront, is our take on the uncertain times we are facing. The compass on the cover represents our crisis leaders. The compass is a timeless, classis instrument and its use is ever-present and constant even with changing events and technology. In a crisis, our leaders are the voice and presence who will chart the direction to follow in the midst of turmoil and uncertainty.

​Home Team Journal Issue No. 5 

Law enforcement is a particularly stressful job. Firstly, there are operational factors such as exposure to physical risks. Then there are organisational factors such as time pressure, public pressure and limited resources. What helps officers “bounce back” after a stressful event?

In the cover story of this issue of the Home Team Journal, “Organisational Predictors of Stress and Resilience of Police Officers: A Singapore Perspective”, Dr Gabriel Ong of  the Home Team Behavioural Sciences Centre shares his ideas on organisational interventions that could boost the resilience of police officers.

Readers interested to find out more about other areas of the Home Team’s work would be keen to read up on articles on money laundering, the Singapore passport, evidence-based rehabilitation and contemporary drug policies. The contributors have distilled complex issues into articles that are engaging and easy-to-read.

Home Team Journal Issue No. 6

While social media has been around for nearly a decade, we are only just beginning to understand its impact on society and how it enables cybercrime, such as cyberstalking, scamming and theft of intellectual property. In the cover story of this issue of the Home Team Journal, "Unwanted Acquaintances: Cyberstalking as Experienced by Emerging Adults in Singapore", Dr. Majeed Khader, Director of the Home Team Behavioural Sciences Centre (HTBSC), Senior Consultant Psychologist and his team of psychologists and researchers explore the prevalence and impact of cyberstalking victimisation among Singaporean emerging adults. The findings, such as victim threat perception, distress levels and coping strategies are discussed. The article also calls for greater awareness of cyberstalking and gave suggestions on anti-cyberstalking measures.

On a similar note, Mr Neo Loo Seng from the HTBSC takes a look at online self-radicalisation in his article "Identifying Individuals Radicalised via the Internet: A Behavioural Sciences Approach". In his article, Mr Neo proposes the use of behavioural sciences research to aid law enforcement agencies in identifying individuals at risk of being radicalised via the Internet.

This issue also includes a special feature on Mr Benny Lim, our former Permanent Secretary for Home Affairs and Director of the Internal Security Department from 1997 to 2011, as he retires from public service.
