Uniformed Security Personnel at MRT Stations and Bus Interchanges
 
Joint Press Release
Uniformed security personnel will be deployed at MRT stations and bus interchanges from 1 June 2004 as part of ongoing efforts to strengthen the security in our public transport system. The security personnel, deployed by the public transport operators, SBS Transit and SMRT, will complement security arrangements already in place, such as regular Police patrols at the public transport facilities. There is currently no specific threat in Singapore and no cause for alarm.

The presence of uniformed security personnel will provide a visible deterrent against security threats. The uniformed security personnel can be identified by their 'Transit Security' badge on their uniform. They will perform patrols at the station or bus interchange premises. They will also conduct random bag or parcel checks, to look out for devices that can be used to cause damage to lives and properties. This may result in some inconvenience for commuters. We seek the public's understanding and cooperation in this regard. The checks are necessary to protect the safety of all commuters and ensure the security of our system.

The public should continue to maintain vigilance and report unattended articles and suspicious behaviour to the station or interchange staff, or police, and work together with the authorities and the operators on the security measures to keep our system safe and secure.
