Field Visit - Sentosa's Joint Command Centre (JCC)

Dear Members

ASIS International (Singapore Chapter) will be hosting its fourth quarter's field visit in 2014 at Sentosa’s Joint Command Centre (JCC).

The JCC, which acts as a surveillance centre and contact point for responding to emergency incidents on Sentosa, was officially opened on 28 May 2014 by Mr S Iswaran, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office and Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade and Industry.

The JCC features a sophisticated Integrated Surveillance System (ISS), including a video-wall which allows security personnel to monitor footage captured by CCTV cameras strategically located across the island. These cameras will provide 24-hour surveillance of the island all year round. The system is integrated with Sentosa’s existing Information Management System.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to visit JCC and learn the latest technologies and strategies in managing the security of the resort island. You will also enjoy the benefit of networking with the Sentosa’s Security Team and walk away with valuable lessons.

Participants will qualify for 2 CPE hours towards CPP, PSP and PCI recertification.

CPR for Child and Infant Workshop

Every parent should know how and when to administer CPR. When performed correctly, CPR can save a child's life by restoring blood flow to the heart, brain, and other organs and restoring breathing until advanced life support can be given by health care providers. If CPR is needed, using the correct technique will give someone the best chance of survival.

CPR might be necessary in many different emergencies, including accidents, near-drowning, suffocation, poisoning, smoke inhalation, electrocution injuries, and suspected sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

ASIS International (Singapore Chapter) will be having a CPR for child and infant workshop and the details are as follows:
Date - 14 October 2014
Time - 7-10pm
Venue - Lion Building B, 12 Arumugam Road, #02-11, Singapore 409958 (Just right next to MacPherson MRT exit B)
Fee - 
$10 for Singapore Chapter Paid Up Members / Spouses 
$15 for ASIS International Members / Spouses
$20 for women in security who are not ASIS members

Please register using the form below.


CPR (or cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is a combination of chest compressions and rescue breathing (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation). If someone isn't circulating blood or breathing adequately, CPR can restore circulation of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. Without oxygen, permanent brain damage or death can occur in less than 8 minutes.
