August 2009 - Meeting with the National Crime Prevention Council of Singapore
Judge Andrew Wilson with Representatives from the National Crime Prevention Council of Singapore
On 19 August 2009, Judge Andrew Wilson AM, former National President of ACPC attended a meeting with the National Crime Prevention Council of Singapore.
Judge Wilson wrote:
I was pleased to represent the Australian Crime Prevention Council during a recent visit to Singapore, where I met the Chairman and office-bearers of the National Crime Prevention Council of Singapore. The purpose of the Meeting was to discuss crime prevention in the Asia Pacific Region.
The Chairman Mr. Tan Kian Hoon and the Vice-Chairman Mr.Eric Low hosted a Banquet arranged in my honour and attended by members of Singapore's Executive Committee and their Executive Director Mr.Chua Chuan Seng. It was immediately apparent to me that the National Crime Prevention Council of Singapore not only is an active organisation but also performs a leadership role in the Region. My hosts were interested to hear of recent initiatives taken by ACPC in the Region and of our plans for the future. I feel confident that any future Regional Forum to be attended by crime prevention "practitioners" in the Region will be supported and attended by our colleagues from Singapore.
The spirit of goodwill that was made apparent and the level of co-operation that was shown were such as to provide me with a feeling of confidence that our two organisations can work together in the future in a spirit of partnership. There is undoubtedly scope for maintaining a network of crime prevention operatives in the Asia Pacific Region and for the sharing of good practices.
