Certis Cisco officer dies after being found with gunshot wound to his head in East Coast Park

A 42-year-old Certis Cisco officer was found with a gunshot wound to the head in East Coast Park on Saturday (Sept 19) morning. Police found the auxiliary police officer at about 6.15am near carpark C2 in East Coast Park. The gun issued to the officer was found beside him, the police said. Paramedics declared him dead at 7.48am. On Saturday at about 1.30am, Certis Cisco had informed the police that the officer did not return his service revolver after his shift had ended. This led the police to start a search for the officer. The police said investigations are ongoing, but they do not suspect foul play. When asked how long he was employed with the firm, Certis Cisco declined to provide details about the man. Deputy Assistant Commissioner of Police Julian Chee, who is the Commander of Certis Cisco Auxiliary Police Force, said Certis Cisco is assisting the police with investigations. He said: «We are deeply saddened to learn that one of our auxiliary police officers has passed away. We are in contact with his next-of-kin and will provide our support and assistance to them in this difficult time.»

Advocates call for better education on sex, consent and objectification in review of women's issues

More equal sharing of caregiving responsibilities, better education on issues of sex and consent, and weeding out banter that objectifies women - these are some of the issues affecting women which advocates want to see considered in a comprehensive review that was announced on Sunday (Sept 20). Legislating some of these suggestions will send a strong signal on women's role in Singapore society, but ultimately such efforts must be coupled with education to drive a change in mindset, they added, responding to the Government's announcement of the review, which aims to bring about deep-seated changes in attitudes towards gender issues. The review will culminate in a White Paper to be delivered in the first half of next year (2021), said Minister for Home Affairs and Law K Shanmugam. Executive director for the Association of Women for Action and Research (Aware) Corrina Lim lauded the initiative, adding it was crucial it addressed the most pressing issues facing women currently.
