Two youths aged 15 and 19 are currently being investigated for selling police insignia items online.

On 7 November 2016, the Police received two separate reports that police insignia items were being sold on various online platforms. Officers from Tanglin Division conducted follow up investigations and established the identities of the two youths who were involved in the sale of the items. Both subjects had sold items such as police medals as well as police service ribbons, and did not possess a licence for the sale of such items.

The Police would like to advise members of public that the sale of police insignia items without a license is an offence under the Police Force Act, which carries an imprisonment term not exceeding 3 years, or with fine not exceeding $10,000, or both.
