‘Enhanced patrols’ at Orchard Road on Christmas Eve as large crowds expected

SINGAPORE, 21 December 2022 – There will be enhanced patrols around Orchard Road on the night of Christmas Eve as large crowds are expected, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) said on Wednesday (Dec 21)

From the evening of Dec 24, police officers, auxiliary police officers, and security officers will be deployed to manage crowds in the vicinity of Orchard Road to ensure the safety and security of the public, SPF said.

Crowd control barricades and direction signs will be put up to facilitate a safe and orderly crowd flow.

“The public is advised to be patient and follow officers’ instructions, and not attempt to force their way in crowded or closed-off areas,” the police said in an advisory.

As Orchard MRT station is expected to be crowded, commuters are advised to head towards alternative stations such as Dhoby Ghaut and Somerset MRT stations, where possible.

The police added that the enhanced patrols will be carried out by the Protective Security Command, Transport Security Command, Emergency Response Teams and the Special Operations Command.
