Hi all,

Posting here since this is SPF Related albeit not Enlistment related.

I would like some thoughts and advice.

I'm 20 this year and I spent 2 years in ITE after completing 'N' Levels (I was in the DPP Programme) and graduated with a Higher Nitec in Events Management in 2017. Following which, I decided to follow my interests and enrolled in LASALLE's Diploma in Broadcast Media.(I tried for FSV in NP thru EAE but didn't make the cut)

However, few months into the first year of the course, I found myself struggling to cope with the modules as they were all foundation art modules. ie. figure drawing, acrylic paint colour mixing and matching, sculpture making. I myself am not an artistic person so my skills aren't there. (TL;DR, I couldn't cope with life in LASALLE.)

Anyways, one day I thought about my future and since Sec 4 (if i recall), I wanted to serve in the SPF. So as of now, I am wondering should I:

1. Drop out from LASALLE, sign on to the SPF and take up a part time diploma?

2. Drop out from LASALLE, apply for a place in a local poly, work hard for a Home Team Diploma Sponsorship (pays my school fees and secures me a job in SPF)

I'm sure most ppl would want be to complete my studies but to be frank, I feel wary of taking full time studies.
Probs from the bad experience I had in LASALLE but I feel I probs need some regimentation to learn to be more responsible.

So, what are your thoughts?


If there are any SPF Regulars, JPOs esp, I would greatly love to hear from you.


Thank you in advance!


A diploma graduate vs O lvl graduate makes a difference in SPF cause your rank and pay will be different when you sign on.
Education lvls has impact on your promotion as well.

Unless you are the designated squad IC, do not bring any portable charger etc. Just make sure to not bring any of the prohibited items in the list

Now more lenient, can bring powerbank (20000mah or lesser). Not enough battery if you always use nvm, still can use laptop charge phone or the powerbank anyway. Only phone charger for ICs.

Also now can bring earpiece.

There will be a few, but the more common ones are as follows:
  1. Senang Diri (Stand at Ease)
  2. Sedia (Stand at Attention)
  3. Kekanan Pusing (Right Turn)
  4. Kekiri Pusing (Left Turn)
  5. Dari Kiri, Cepat Jalan (By the Left, Quick March)
  6. Kekanan Lurus (Dressing to the Right)
  7. Pandang Kehadapan, Pandang (Eyes Front)

You can actually view the basic list on the CMPB website here.

Honestly speaking, as long as they allow you to bring in a cable, you should be good as you can charge your phone using your laptop.

Just want to x2 check. There isnt any tickets for our parents for entry right ? (Like limited number of family members to say goodbye)
Your parents will receive a invitation letter from spf. At the back of the letter you will have to cut out the 3 tickets. Present the tickets at the guard house when entering.
Honestly it shouldn't matter, when I was enlisting, I saw people bring their whole extended family, Grandparents, cousins, and even their own friends, so as long as they arrive in the same car, you should be good to go.

I need advice on how do I climb myself up to become csi in America, but I think itís call css (crime scene specialist) in Singapore. But I donít have education related to forensic course. I just finish higher Nitec in mechatronic and I deferred my nyp aerospace/mechatronic program. I defer my course at nyp just so I could sign on police and find a pathway to become csi.

Iím not sure, if can police recommend me to a poly with the course related to the I want. Or I have to slowly climb myself up in the spf.

Who should I seek for in the camp for the advice.

Iím enlisting this coming 14 Aug
Sorry for the late reply, but if you intend to sign on, SPF does have a forensic division, but you will need to have background in Forensics in order to sign on to the department. If you are talking about the Investigations officers, then it is very difficult to sign on to become that straight away, a lot of the time you will have to work as a GRF for 5 years to get experience to then transfer to IO. Otherwise, you would be looking at CID, which does plain clothes operations, but they normally deal with undercover operations within the secret societies in Singapore.
