The Singapore Police Force (SPF) and the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) held the Delta League Grand Finals (June 2019 Edition) on 29 June 2019 at Jurong East Stadium. Ms Sun Xueling, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of National Development graced the event as the guest of honour.
In this edition, there were more than 1,200 players from 120 teams competing in three different groups (Under-15 Boys, Under-18 Boys and Girls Open Category).
The football tournament is held twice a year - during the June and December school holidays to keep students meaningfully occupied. Besides playing football, participants in Delta League are required to take part in other activities designed to enhance their crime prevention awareness and inculcate a sense of social responsibility, teamwork and discipline.
This June, the youths designed anti scam awareness and cyber wellness posters which required them to apply what they have learnt, to further educate others. The winning posters were exhibited during the event and uploaded on the Facebook pages of Delta League and various Neighbourhood Police Centres.
The next edition of Delta League will run during the December 2019 school holidays.
