Singapore Police Force (SPF) Pay, Ranks and Sign-On Bonus

The Singapore Police Force has two main vocations, namely the Police Officer Scheme and Civilian Officer Scheme.

Under the Police Officer Scheme, there are two roles: Direct-Entry Inspector Police Officer and Direct-Entry Sergeant.

SPF Direct-Entry Inspector Police Officer

The starting pay of a Direct-Entry Inspector Police Officer ranges from $4,340 to $5,300.

The SPF Inspector Police Officer’s salary varies according to performance during the interview, any relevant work experiences and if he has completed his full-time National Service.

Uniformed officers are eligible for the following:

  • Retirement benefits under the INVEST Scheme, a scheme that invests 13.25% of gross salary to earn investment returns for retirement. This scheme starts from your first year in service and will cease when you reach 55 years old. Upon retirement, the officer can withdraw the full sum.
  • Strategic Payment Scheme: Inspectors are eligible for cash payouts of three months (Assistant Superintendent of Police and below) quantum upon reaching their 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 20, and 25 years in service.
  • Police (Invest) Payment: In recognition of the challenging nature of Police work, you will also receive an annual cash payment, where the quantum of payment ranges from 0.75 months to 1.5 months, as you advance up the ranks.

SPF Direct-Entry Sergeant

A typical Police Force Direct-Entry Sergeant receives a one-time Sign-On Bonus of $10,000 (Higher NITEC, NITEC and GCE ‘O’ Level) or $30,000 (Diploma holders of local Polytechnics, International Baccalaureate (IB), NUS High School, NAFA, LASELLE and ITE Technical Engineering or GCE ‘A’ Level).

Direct-Entry Sergeants can also serve out their National Service liability by serving 5 years as a regular police officer while still receiving their full salary and benefits.

Similar to Inspector police officers, Sergeants are also eligible for:

Similar to SPF officers, SCDF uniformed officers are eligible for retirement benefits under the INVEST Scheme, a scheme that invests 13.25% of gross salary to earn investment returns for retirement.

This scheme starts from your first year in service and will cease when you reach 55 years old.

Upon retirement, the officer can withdraw the full sum.

Strategic Payment Scheme

New officers can look forward to cash payouts of three months (Captain and below) and 2.5 months (Major and above) quantum upon reaching their 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 20, and 25 years in service.

Direct-Entry Sergeants from both the Fire and Rescue and Paramedic sides are also eligible for the INVEST Retirement Package. Unlike their Lieutenant counterparts, they get 7.75% of their gross salary credited to their retirement accounts.

Both Lieutenants and Sergeants could have the chance to hone their skillset in specialist functions such as Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team (DART), Marine Fire Fighting, Fire Investigation and enforcement.

Strategic Payment Scheme

New officers can look forward to cash payouts of three months (Lieutenant and below) quantum upon reaching their 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 20, and 25 years in service.

On top of the above, Singapore Civil Defence Force offers civilian positions such as the Home Affairs Senior Executive (HASE), Extended Management Executive (E-MXS) Officer, Home Team Specialist Scheme and Technical Support Officer scheme — very much like SPF.

However, it’s unclear what the salary ranges are for civilian officers, but for a gauge, the range should be close to similar roles found in SPF.

Thinking if You Should Join the Home Team?

While the salaries seem tempting, you should also know that a career in the service requires some level of passion as you’ll be serving the public and perhaps, life and death.

It may not be for everyone especially if long hours and bureaucracy might be at play in certain vocations.

But if you still want to serve, why not consider other career options in the civil service (i.e., plain shirt officers)?
