The police will also tighten the security measures by increasing the presence of police officers in the city in order to deter and swiftly respond to crimes and security incidents.
“Barricades, signs and speakers will be deployed to guide the public in and out of the Marina Bay area,” stated in the post.
Also in the post, the police also advised the public to be considerate and vigilant, adopt crime prevention measures and cooperate with marshals and police officers on duty while enjoying the festive celebration.
