Mr Khoo Boon Hui – better known as Paul to alumni – was elected President of INTERPOL, the international policing organisation, in October 2008. He has more than 30 years of police experience as well as recognized expertise in organizational management. Under his leadership as Commissioner of Police from 1977 to 2010, the Singapore Police Force helped Singapore maintain low crime rates and earn a reputation as one of the safest cities in the world. Currently Senior Deputy Secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs, his new role is to position Singapore as a hub for safety and security services and training.

Mr Khoo holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, as well as a BA in Engineering Science and Economics from Oxford. He attended the Advanced Management Program at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 2002 and has received numerous international honours and local awards.

Come listen to our distinguished alumni discuss his experiences with INTERPOL and international policing and his thoughts on comparisons with local policing in Singapore, in the historic ambience of SPOM. The earliest record of the SPOM building’s existence can be traced to the January 1931 reports of the Public Works Department of the British colonial government. Considered by the Singapore Police as a treasure trove of its rich heritage and history, SPOM is not usually open to members of the public unless by invitation. This is your invitation to enjoy the company of alumni and the world’s top policeman in a historic building.

Please complete and send Response Slip with your cheque to The Secretariat, 10 Shenton Way, MAS Building #13-02, Singapore 079117. You can also reserve your seat by emailing   Registration closes on 7 May.
