Singapore Police Force to revamp service schemes
Senior and junior officer tracks may be merged to help it hire and retain talent
The Singapore Police Force has not been spared the country's labour crunch. So, in a bid to better recruit and retain talent, it is planning to revamp its service schemes.
Last Friday, the police called for a tender to merge its current Senior Police Officer and Police Officer schemes - better known among the men and women in blue as the senior officer and junior officer tracks respectively - into one.
Currently, degree holders are usually recruited into the senior officer scheme, while those with at least five GCE O-level passes or a Nitec from the Institute of Technical Education come under the junior officer scheme.
Junior officers may later be considered for promotion into the senior ranks.
