Brief Description

The Specialised Sexual Crimes Branch under the Singapore Police Force (SPF) Criminal Investigation Department has elaborated guidelines on managing and investigating cases of sexual crimes against women, including sexual exploitation and trafficking. Where extra sensitivities are involved, e.g. child victims, joint interviews may be conducted with the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS). The embassies of the country of origin of trafficked victims will also be notified so that the full range of humanitarian and consular assistance can be accorded to these victims.
