The Singapore Police Force has a heritage almost as old as that of modern Singapore, having been formed in 1819 with a skeleton force of 11 men under the command of Francis James Bernard, son-in-law of William Farquhar, and kept in operation with a monthly budget of $300.
Singapore's first executions were thus held in the wake of the first criminal session in June 1828, when a Chinese and Indian were found guilty and convicted for murder.
There was little urgency in the police force to increase its manpower strength until the Laju incident in 1974 demonstrated the need for additional trained reserve officers who can be called up at short notice in the event of an emergency.
In the nineteenth century the Chinese population of Singapore was predominantly male.
Singapore, especially in the early days, rose to prominence at a rapid level, with the tonnage of ships using Singapore port nearly tripling, from 600,000 tons to 1,600,000 tons, between 1870-1880.
