THE police want to beef up security at both of Singapore’s land checkpoints with a new perimeter detection system.
Vendors were invited from March 13 to submit proposals for a Perimeter Intrusion Detection System for the Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints. The system will provide an additional layer of security to existing fencing at the checkpoints.
It must be able to immediately detect and locate any physical intrusion at the checkpoint fences, whether by someone attempting to scale or cut the fence. It should also be able to detect when and where sensors or electronic parts are being tampered with.
A police spokesman said the new system would improve checkpoint security by pinpointing the location of any attempted intrusion, thus allowing security forces to respond “in a timely manner”.
He added that the idea for such an intrusion detection system came from a review in 2012.
The Woodlands checkpoint suffered two recent security breaches, which prompted calls for stronger security measures. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
