The origins of Singapore's penal system may be traced back to the arrival of the first batch of convicts in 1825. However, SPS was formally established as a government agency only in 1946. SPS celebrates 'SPS75' this year, commemorating 75 years since its inception. SPS has since progressed to be a leading correctional agency in the safe and secure custody, and rehabilitation of inmates. To commemorate its 75th anniversary, SPS is raising $75,000 from its Captains of Lives for the President's Challenge 2021:

a. Cluster A: $18,200
b. Cluster B: $16,500
c. Cluster C: $9,300
d. Community Supervision Centre (ComC): $6,700
e. Operations & Security Command (OSC): $4,100
f. Prison Headquarters (PHQ): $20,200

There is much to celebrate but we want to instill a sense of pride amongst staff and demonstrate that SPS cares about those in need. Indeed, care is one of our core values! We urge all staff to contribute towards this meaningful cause.

SPS Cares - $75K for 75 Years! Let's do it!
