National Police Cadet Corp

Brief Outline

The National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC) was formed in 1959 and has grown in numbers and substance to become one of the more popular youth organisations in Singapore. Supported by the Ministry of Education (MOE) of Singapore, its popularity among youths is largely attributed to its stature as the only uniformed youth organisation to enjoy close affiliation with the Singapore Police Force.Our cadets are exposed to unique opportunities so as to gain exposure and familiarity with Singapore's crime prevention efforts to build a safe and secure home.The mission of the the National Police Cadet Corps is to "develop our members to be active citizens and community leaders, by working in partnership with the Singapore Police Force to fight crime and keep Singapore safe."

Main Activities

The NPCC has an overarching framework that provides direction in the training and development of a cadet from a new recruit at Secondary One to a youth leader and an officer. The key areas of training include Law Enforcement, National Education, Leadership, Resilience, Personal Development and Character Development. Not only do cadets undergo a variety of police-related courses like Police Knowledge and Crime Scene Investigation, they also develop resilience and hone their leadership skills with the Adventure Training Camp and Leadership and Mentoring Skills Course. Weapons Training are also provided, where cadets fire the 0.22 caliber revolver. On the personal development front, cadets learn campcraft and kayaking.
