Abstract: "No social change are without their costs, and principal costs of making the social structure more the decline in the social integration. An index of crime rate." (Banton, 1964:5) one of flexible this is the is the One of the most significant social changes in Singapore is the high rate of urbanization where over 80% of her population reside in urban public housing estates. Social scientists generally believe that urbanization leads to alienation · and the disintegration of social solidarity, and that. the anonymous neighbourhood contributes to the greater vulnerability of residents toward crime. The Singapore government has over the years embarked on several community development programmes to promote social consciousness and national integration. The Neighbourhood Police Post (NPP) System, implemented on June 1983, is, in part, the Republic of Singapore Police's (RSP) response to improve the crime situation in urban housing estates and, partly to adhere to the government's bid for community development. The NPP system is modelled after the Japanese Koban system and attempts to improve police-public relations through increased cooperation between the police and the community. This exercise is an attempt to assess the extent of success of the NPP system in improving the crime situation and in contributing to community development through its community-oriented concept of policing.
