Amenities and architecture
The design of the building integrates the varied operational requirements of the major offices to create a modern, efficient and user-friendly environment. Each department block has its own distinct identity and yet when viewed together, project a uniform identity.
The semi-circular structure at the corner depicts a soaring bird's wing.
The energy-efficient aluminium and glass curtain-wall, intelligent building management system, document conveying system and central vacuum system are some of the unique features of the main complex.
The complex consists of four blocks of building and consists of a 25-storey tower with 6 to 9-storey podium blocks and a 4-storey basement for parking, services and operational areas. Block A houses the Central Police Division, together with the Bukit Merah East Neighbourhood Police Centre. Block B houses the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB), while the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is located in Block C and the Commercial Affairs Department (CAD) in Block D.
The complex houses two different departments of Singapore's Home Team, namely the Central Narcotics Bureau and the Singapore Police Force. Located on the second floor of Block D are the Certificate of No Criminal Conviction (CNCC) Office, Record Office, Police Welfare Division and Licensing Division.
Although the mean of cantonment is same with headquarter, but the real headquarters for Singapore Police Force is at New Phoenix Park in Novena.
