Over 700 promoted at annual Promotion and Long Service Award Ceremony
The atmosphere was joyous at AETOS Complex last Friday at the annual Promotion and Long Service Award Ceremony. More than 700 personnel were promoted, including Auxiliary Police Officers, Security Officers, and corporate staff, while over 130 personnel received Long Service Awards.

The annual promotion exercise is part of AETOS’ ongoing efforts to reward and recognise employees for their performance and dedication, as well as identify and develop those who have demonstrated potential to eventually take on greater leadership roles in the organisation.

The promotees for this year include Sergeant Murugan, who has previously received the Police Commissioner Award, as well as multiple other commendations during his time with AETOS. While he excels at his current vocation – managing the Cash-in-Transit vehicle fleet and logistics - SGT (APF) Murugan has also made it a point to diversify his skillsets. Today, he is both a certified shooting range instructor and a trainer for Self-Service Banking operations, coordinating and conducting training for the officers in his division.

Security Supervisor Devi, currently deployed at Tan Tock Seng Hospital as a team leader of 18 Security Officers, was also in good spirits as she received her certificate of promotion. Aside from her core security duties, she has deftly handled a diverse range of responsibilities, including rostering, preparing security reports, and participating in meetings with hospital management. Said Devi, “I’m thankful that I am recognised for the work that I do, and look forward to taking on new roles at AETOS.”

Addressing those present, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Alfred Fox, emphasised the need for officers to be equipped with the right competencies and skills to handle any difficulties they might face during the course of their duties. To that end, AETOS will be rolling out several training and development initiatives, including leadership programmes spearheaded by AETOS Training Academy.

The hard work and dedication of our long-serving officers was also highlighted during the ceremony. Officers such as Corporal Sumanthy Pillai, who received an award for 35 years of service, have played an integral role as mentors and role models to countless officers during AETOS’ development. Their professionalism and excellence have set high standards for subsequent generations of officers.

“People will always remain as our greatest asset. AETOS is committed to invest in our people – this is where our success starts,” said Mr Fox.

AETOS and TRD Singapore Collaborate to Provide Counter Unmanned Aircraft System Services
Singapore, 03 September 2019 – AETOS has signed a Teaming Agreement with TRD Singapore, a global CUAS equipment manufacturer and solution supplier, to collaboratively provide Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems (CUAS) services as a safeguard against the threat of malicious drones.

With these added capabilities, AETOS will be the first in Singapore to provide a full-suite of end-to-end Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) services. The full spectrum of operations ranges from security and aerial surveillance, to built environment and safety inspections, and CUAS services.

Mr Alfred Fox, Chief Executive Officer of AETOS, said, “AETOS strongly believes in the selection of best-in-class and future-ready technologies that would strengthen our ops-tech capabilities and meet our clients’ specific needs. Through this partnership with TRD, AETOS aims to enhance its suite of security solutions, and to also complement the authorities in their efforts to enhance public safety and deal with security threats posed by unauthorised drones.”

Under the agreement, AETOS officers will undergo rigorous training by TRD Singapore to become CUAS-proficient and operationally ready to support the authorities in various deployments, such as the protection of critical infrastructure and major public events.

Mr Sam Ong, Managing Director of TRD Singapore, said, “Countering the threats caused by errant drones is becoming an increasing concern for security forces worldwide. By leveraging on our tested and proven home-grown CUAS solution, AETOS can now effectively detect drones and even locate its operators. Appropriate measures could then be taken.”

Protecting our environment at Jurong Lake Gardens
Spirits were high today at Jurong Lake Gardens as the AETOS senior management team, corporate employees, and trainees alike volunteered at Jurong Lake Gardens to help keep the area litter-free.

As part of a renewed focus on corporate social responsibility, this project is one of several geared towards environmental protection. Under this new initiative, in partnership with the National Parks Board, volunteers from across AETOS will come together once a month to help ensure the cleanliness of the park.

In a brief speech to the assembled volunteers, Mr Alfred Fox, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, said, “At the heart of volunteering lies a sense of civic-mindedness and the desire to give back to society. We want our people to internalize these values and uphold them during the course of their work each day. This is #AETOS Strong – when our efforts towards safety and security go beyond our clients and responsibilities, and are extended towards the communities we live in as well.”

AETOS strongly believes that reducing our environmental impact is important to the continued effectiveness and sustainability of our business.
