As a volunteer, you can contribute and help out at a wide range of activities for offenders, from enrichment programmes, art therapy and academic tutoring to family-based activities.

I take pride in working with the regular officers, PNSFs, PNSmen and civilian staff to maintain law and order, and to keep Singapore safe. I also enjoy interacting with members of the public during our patrols and roadshows. I feel I am part of a larger family and this keeps inspiring me to do my best.
