On 12 September 2022, 30 Public Safety and Security (PSS) Programme students embarked on an unforgettable guided tour at Disney Command Centre and Home Team Gallery!
First stop was Disney's Asia Pacific Security Control Centre (ASCC), where the students got a behind-the-scenes look at all the security-related activities that go into keeping their assets safe and secure. Equipped with state-of-the-art tools and manned by a diverse team of industry professionals, the ASCC is responsible for surveillance of company events, risk assessment, social-media monitoring, welfare checks and safeguarding Disney’s online presence from potential cyber threats. PSS students were also able to hear from experts their first-hand experiences working at Disney Asia Pacific.
PSS students had a fruitful learning journey at the Disney’s Asia Pacific Security Control Centre.
Next, the students were off to the Home Team Gallery, an indispensable repository of the Home Team Academy’s rich legacy, which showcased the achievements of homeland security agents that keep Singapore safe. The themed exhibits displayed artefacts used by several Home Team’s constituent agencies such as helmets and bolt-action rifles. The gallery captured personal stories from the Home Team heroes and the students learned about the importance of safeguarding law and order in Singapore. The trip culminated with an insightful Q&A session with the students.
The learning journey for students is one of the many programme’s events and activities to enrich and complement the academic learning of PSS students.
Tang Peixuan, Year 1 PSS student shared, “After visiting the Disney Command Centre, I learned that there are many opportunities in the private sector. It was also very inspiring to see how the Disney crew plays such a crucial role in protecting Disney.”
Collin Sahaphap Chew, Year 1 PSS student added, “The Home Team Gallery taught me that we must never take the peace and security that we have in Singapore for granted. A collaborative and multi-faceted approach amongst the different agencies is of utmost importance."
