The Pingat Gagah Perkasa (Conspicuous Gallantry Medal, 杰出英勇奖章), instituted in 1962, is awarded to members of the Singapore Police Force, as well as members of the Singaporean public who displayed outstanding performance or exceptional bravery in situations involving a threat to personal danger. For these acts to be recognised, they have to be performed in Singapore, although exceptions may be made.

The Pingat Gagah Perkasa (Tentera) is the Singapore Armed Forces equivalent award.
