VOI News : The Singapore Police Force (SPF) will introduce a new Cyber Police National Service vocation later this year, Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat said on Friday (May 24).

Speaking at SPF's workplan seminar, Mr Heng said the new vocation will allow the police to "better tap" the expertise of full-time national servicemen (NSFs).

These NSFs will be deployed to the Cybercrime Command and Anti-Scam Command to detect and disrupt crimes.

The police said they are setting up a new Cyber Ops Cell by the end of this year to "coordinate intelligence, investigation, operation, and disruption responses to cybercrime cases requiring real-time interventions".//CNA
