History

'D' Division was first formed in 1964 with its headquarters at Queenstown Police Station, Queenstown, which was sited directly across the road from the Police Reserve Unit 2 stationed at Queensway Base. This base also provided accommodations for off-duty single male officers then. Changing demographies and the rapid development of the suburbs resulted in the shifting of the divisional headquarters to its present location in Clementi in 1987.

'D' Division was the first division in which the NPC system was implemented and went on trial. The first such NPC, Queenstown Neighbourhood Police Centre[1], opened its doors on 1 October 1997 before being officially opened by Mr Wong Kang Seng, Minister for Home Affairs, on 20 December 1997. Operating from a temporary site beside the Queenstown MRT Station, it has since moved to a new site co-located with the new fire station of the Singapore Civil Defence Force.[2] The other three NPCs has since moved into permanent buildings, although the Clementi Neighbourhood Police Centre was setup at the existing facilities of the Clementi Police Station now co-located with the division headquarters.
