Technology will also have to be used effectively to help the Home Team cope with the manpower squeeze, and this includes making a major investment to put more police cameras in public places - an initiative Mr Shanmugam described as a "key plank" in the country's counter-terrorism strategy.

But the use of traffic cameras and ERP data caused some concern in the House. Workers' Party MP Pritam Singh (Aljunied GRC) and Nominated MP Kok Heng Leun asked how the Government would ensure the data would not be misused.

In February, privacy concerns were raised when the Government announced it would be rolling out the next-generation ERP system, which can track the precise whereabouts of vehicles round the clock.





I think they should implant all citizens with GPS tracking chip or at least RFID tags.  this will help secure Singapore  8)

each tourist should be accompanied by armed escorts to prevent them from carrying out terrorism-related activities .... this will create more jobs for able-bodied singaporeans .....

they can create an app called "Grab-Tourist" for jobless singaporeans ....
