Tight Security Measures for Roof Access

PAP TOWN COUNCILS HAVE TIGHT SECURITY MEASURES FOR ROOF ACCESS IN HDB ESTATES​

The recent reports on the vandalism at the rooftop of a Housing and Development Board (HDB) in Toa Payoh on 7 May 2014 raised some concerns on the security of the HDB rooftops. Hence, I would like to assure our residents that the PAP Town Councils have already taken measures to tighten the security of the rooftops.

Since 2011, the PAP Town Councils have adopted a three-pronged strategy to tighten the security of roof access. 

First, all our lock sets including water tank covers, roof access and the pump rooms have been changed to non-duplicable locks. These lock sets are robust, and with restricted key control. Second, only authorised personnel approved by the Town Council will be allowed to access the rooftops.  All authorised personnel working on the rooftops must wear  security vests issued by the Town Councils. An auxiliary police officer or Town Council's staff will be present to escort them for each and every assignment.  Finally, the bolting or fastening of steel brackets over the water tank covers to safeguard the security of water tanks at the rooftops. The security protocols was developed and adopted in consultation with the Police and PUB.  A roof access Standard Operation Procedure was also drawn up to reinforce this importance. Our Property Officers on site will continue to conduct regular checks to these areas through scheduled Inspections. 

I would like to assure our residents that PAP Town Councils take a serious view on the security of our roof access.
