17 May 2015, Vehicles On Watch (VOW) is a project that partners residents with in-vehicle cameras with the police to keep the neighbourhood safe. These cameras act as additional “eyes” in the community; participating residents in VOW may be approached by the Police for footage from their in-vehicle cameras for the purpose of investigations. To date,
about 760 vehicle owners with in-vehicles cameras are on board VOW, across 56 car parks in Bedok, Changi, Geylang, Marine Parade, Pasir Ris and Tampines.
Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, who is also the Coordinating Minister for National Security and Minister for Home Affairs, Grassroots Advisor & MP for Pasir Ris–Punggol GRC launched the VOW project on 17 May 2015 at the Pasir Ris West Emergency Preparedness Day 2015.
Commander of Bedok Police Division, Assistant Commissioner of Police Alvin Moh said, “Installation of a 24-hour in-vehicle camera allows for the vehicle’s surroundings to be recorded even after the vehicle is parked. With more in-vehicle cameras watching, residents can look forward to safer car parks and safer neighbourhoods.”
