Currently working as an APO, 264 hrs a month..bring back 2900sgd after cpf.
Now as a APO. True indeed. Gross 3600, net 2900.

Being a PO, after Injury and corporate, now APO. In comparison, those whom won't mind the long hours will enjoy APO as it may "ALOT" better then PO. Yes APO paying higher then state PO. Verified

Those whom seek PO action, APO dun have much action except a few deployment, hence you may get bored very fast within first year of deployment. PO offered more real life action, but BEWARNED, PO job Sign on bonus is 30k cos
1) few hundreds of reported police injuries per year. You be at times handling tough criminals, whom will Bite, spit, kick, Fxxx you, challenge u for fight, escape and jeopardize your career, headbutt u, stab you, push you, slam you and run. But if you think you are up to the challenge, proceed to submit your application to career@gov.

2) if you are Keen to join PO, but they didn't choose you after interview, don't be disheartened. Many of my PO squad mate, only made it after 2 or 3 attempt and some 10th attempted. In mean you can submit job application to C, S, A. Presently I am in C, if u r, SAF ORD, or PNS ORD or going to ORD, and Keen to join either PO or APO, we can meet up for a drink at McDonalds and I won't mind guiding you. If you are ready good but dunno why SPF didn't choose you, we can drink coffee, as I won't mind help my ex org to get solid man or woman.

If you have pending police case(investigation related as a Defendent or court case), don't waste time, none will accept you as PLRD(SPF department) will reject you.

If you intend to stay forever in the org, then SPF will offer better increment. But, bewarn, half of the recruited PO resign in less then 6 years due to stress, injury, less time for gf/wife etc. Those whom last more then 8 years, their salary w/wo OT easily more then those in C,A,S.

Those whom have tried once for SPF but rejected, I strongly urge you to go for C, A to S first, then learn the C job and few months after training and on the Job in C, you can try apply for SPF again, as the entire SPF submission to interview to recuitment timeframe is about 4 to 6 mths long. You can use the time to work or work OT in C first while waiting for next attempt. C reply fast. Pm me for Meetup. FYI, there is Many people in C whom tried SPF to my surprise. Anyway I have 3 former PO colleague whom transit from C to SPF during my 8 years fighting crime. Didn't saw any from S or A though.
There are a few APO whom were former PO in C. They came to C with reasons. Heard 1 is IO, 1 was former TP IO, I was NPCO to PCAO/NIO, and several others. C is a good place for PO to chill and retired. 1 shared with me that 1 siao criminal had being haunting him and his friend family as they caught him back then and sent him to prison. As a result that siao criminal take it personal and manage to trace the officer address. Sad for him, he ORD from SPF, went C, went A, then pte sector, then back to C, and trying to seek a good post but end up posted back to his old post where the siao ex-convict keep finding trouble with him and his family.
I share similar faith, as I arrest/sent many to prison and saw some people already specifically aim me during my service. With injury somemore, I am glad I get to attained similar pay in C with good no stress life. I be glad to coach those Keen to join SPF, look for me in C.
As for now, I am not keen to be trainer in CA, but as what my ex-colleague wish, I am considering (Pay matters) to be course Trainer in HTA. So one day u may see me in CA or HTA.

C is 100% owned by temasek holding.
S is partially owned as it's listed company.
A is (I dunno)

That is y I choose C. Left hand to right hand.

Went down for interview to company C. Saw to ad package 16k joining bonus and comfirm with the recuritment handler.When during interview ask abt salary package become 14k from Interviewer. Saying that is a few years back package and had no longer offer this deal. *if u search from the internet is stated 16k* recruitment personal have no interest explaining on interested position and other details simply want to know u want or dun want as u were wasting her time. Very disappointing on the service... Will try on Company A

If you are Singaporean, you can easily refer to SAF pioneer magazine. It's 16k, sign on, given in following interval.
5k after completion of Academy training (2 mth to 3mth)
5k on 18th months (some is 2.5k every 6 mth interval)
6k on 36th months ( some is 3k every 6 mth)
Not certain why they say 14k to you.
Nonetheless must admit that during my engagement with the interviewer(HR) then, the conversation is more like they doing sales recuitment, very sales approach kind of mentality.
Anyway no harm going for A, after 1 year or more with A, you can come to C and get another Bonus if you think A corporate culture is not suitable. Will welcome you to C. But if you like OT, I heard lot of rumours that with OT lot of A pay more then C. But C less OT then O, thus more rest for marathon career. Several A personel came to C to seek more reasonable rest hours.

With OT, rumours confirm A and C more well paid then SPF. But many young man in C desire to join SPF still having being turn down by SPF.

Heard SATS got plenty of OT too. After OT, SGT can range 3+ to 4 per mth. That also means lots of OT.

My advice is join with the correct mindset..take note regardless is C, A or S is a security guard with arms only...you are not police or Law enforcer so dun behave like one. You will get on the nerves of your supervisors. If you are planning to join only test water like 1 year only..dun bother waste your time...do other better things outside.

Things is changing anyway. Since I was in State Po and C now. I saw how both org work with 2 different culture.
If u r Patriotic and below age 29 or 30 try SPF early and train your Ippt. 2.4 and push up muscle is wildly used skill in SPF, and if SPf reject you, no worries, just come C and keep trying SPF Every 6 mth. My exp,more C people got into SPF

If u r seeking a job with salary , keen on some law enforcement but not so hardcore, then come C. There is also a chance C will deploy U to SPF, ICA, TP, LTA, Custom duties
When you are deployed there there is a chance u dun need to wear C uniform and will be drawing State uniform as u be doing State duties. Civil servant law will applies for those deployed there but salary draw from C.
If U r keen on Higher paycheck and hard-working individual willing to do OT, then C, A or S is better. Your salary will much likely be about 10% to 30% more then SPF.
SPF perks, some SPF officer already break hand break leg already and dun want come out ,cos once out, they cannot get much job already, but it's very mentally rewarding when u kick a criminal ass into prison. You will have more off in SPF as compared to other A, C or S becos your duties at several times is very mentally demanding and you will need the rest. Hear SPF some frontline restricting and their Frontline players will get to have weekly training. In my regular time, there is barely time for retraining, eg. Time dedicated to let you train for IPPT. So many new officers out from HTA often start having difficulty with IPPT after about 4 to 5 years. When they implement, God knows.
If u r into extreme action and does not wear specs and below age 30 with IPPT Silver, try CNB and SPF. If fail go C and beef up while waiting for next attempt and next attempt is 6 mths later. Several SPF wannabe temp themselves in C.

If you have certain skills sets such as networking, very good sales skills, HR, business management skills, architecture skill etc, work in private sector as will skill will develop and pay will rise much faster then gov job. Most of my peers in private already earnings 4k plus to 7k plus basic qnd they get to retire at 65 while uniform group retire at 55. so eventually pte will win. So do pick up secondary skill while in uniform.
As for me, I major with Bsc in finance so earnings side income while in C and hope to do recuitment for C and ex-org SPF. I ORD from SAF, so I got many uniform.
SAF only got to sign on for 6 years, some SAF whom didn't get 2nd contract to work in SAF also come C as SAF jobs is not perm.
If U r married,I "think" dun waste time in SPF or CNB, I didn't see any married young man or woman in training school except the INSP course. Moreover your spouse will worried for u in SPF or CNB. If married, go C. A and S might be too much OT for Married individuals
Hope this helps to offer you the options available.
If you need more career advise, on C or SPF, I be glad to help. Pm me, can put me as referral for C.
Anyway, SPF jobs is perm, those whom stay more then 10 years in service get to enjoy more pay then any C, A or S easily. Hence long term SPF is the best choice but risk involved. But since different people got difference preference and circumstances not all people willing stay in SPF for long and many throw the towel along the years. Many SPF retiree or SPF fallout in C also and they are trainer or assessor in C. Heard rumours and saw some neighborhood sectors is now patrol by C already. Cos SPF always very picky on recuitment and end up lack of manpower and need to sub con to C to do policing work. So eventually U do NPC work.btw, SPF if thing happen OT, got no OT pay, many inside will start grumbling. In C, if let say SPF need to people but all drain out, C got OT pay.
The paradox, SPF people see C, A or S as security guards.
C, A and S see poor SPF no OT pay. I also surprised C -CPL drawing the salary of SPF-SSS. Some want rank , some want $.
If desperate need it money go C, A or S, and whack OT(no life). Ur 24 years old CPL salary can be more then SSS (33 years old)

Remember uniformed services is 24hr shift job. Though well paid but is not for everyone. If u join because you think is a relaxed easy job, better think twice. U need to stand on your feet or sit for long hours. Endure crazy customers temper, yr bosses nonsesnse & regulatory demands. Often u feel that your bossess also no balls to stand up for you. Just endure fxxxx by unreasonable customers.

Hi Roland, what are the criteria for C unarmed APO posts? e.g. weight, age, etc...

Unarm APO, just required you to have the basic common sense s there will be a simple test of many many mcq. Unarm is not required to pass IPPT nor shooting. Hence you won't be carrying nay firearms.
Generally so long you are not too old> 45 or so, I think should be fine. Just need to walk to the job site. Simple bag check and PMD check as feature in channel news Asia.
Usually unarm will not be assigned to tough task. Tough task refer to, patrol with SPF, stand under Sun jaga traffic, walk up and down long distances for 1 or 2 hours.

Precise requirement i am not sure, but I am sure it's requirement is not difficult to meet.
