New CPIB chief has roots in police force
Although Mr Wong Hong Kuan - who will soon be director of the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) - is currently in the Singapore Workforce Development Agency, he has spent much of his public service career as a police officer.
In 1995, Mr Wong, 42, joined the force as an assistant superintendent after graduating with first-class honours in accounting from Nanyang Technological University.
Over the years, he moved up the ranks and became deputy commissioner in 2010.
During his time in the force, he had been put in charge of providing security at major events here, such as the Apec meeting in 2009.
