AETOS provided event security for the 11th Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, having provided security for this major tourist event since its inception. More than 500 Auxiliary Police Officers (APOs) and 130 Security Officers (SOs) will be deployed each day, carrying out duties such as conducting security checks and maintaining public order.
This year’s race also marks the first time our officers will provide additional crowd control and traffic management duties for the Land Transport Authority. Approximately 80 APOs will be stationed near key transport infrastructure, including MRT stations, taxi stands, and shuttle bus points.
In terms of innovative technology, enhanced vehicle management systems, integral to the operation of AETOS’ cash-in-transit vehicle fleet, will be installed for the first time in certain vehicles serving the area. With access control, geofencing, and remote immobilization capabilities, this additional safety measure will reduce the likelihood of vehicle-based threats.
Launched in 2008, the Singapore Grand Prix was the inaugural night race and the first Asian street circuit for the FIA Formula 1 World Championship. An expected 73,000 fans and tourists will descend on the Marina Bay Street Circuit each day for the races, as well as concerts featuring international headliners including Jay Chou, The Killers and Martin Garrix.

AETOS has been awarded a contract to supply security manpower services at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. Among the factors that contributed towards securing this project were price competitiveness and positive reference checks from AETOS’ existing clients in the healthcare sector, such as the Institute of Mental Health.
Said Mr. Patrick Koh, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, “Moving forward, we hope that this project and the associated downstream opportunities will help establish AETOS as the key security service provider for the healthcare industry”.
The project will last for a duration of 24 months with the option to extend for another 24 months. Under the partnership, AETOS’ Auxiliary Police Officers and Security Officers will carry out various duties, such as access control, visitor management and the enforcement of regulations within the hospital.
