The Singapore post gives by these issues, which was issued for the 200th Anniversary of the Police Force.

Designed by established stamp designer Mr Wong Wui Kong, the six stamps feature various police vocations and the strong police-community partnership that keeps Singapore safe and secure every day, as well as pay tribute to SPF pioneering officers, who laid a strong foundation for future generations of officers to build on.
The Singapore Police Force (SPF) commemorates 200 years of policing in 2020 (SPF200). Formed in May 1820, the SPF is one of the oldest government organizations in Singapore. From its humble beginnings as a 12-man team led by Francis James Bernard, the SPF has grown from strength to strength, in tandem with the nation’s progress. Today, the SPF is a strong, professional police force of 15,000 regular officers, civilian staff and Full-time Police National Servicemen, augmented by volunteer police officers and Police Operationally Ready National Servicemen, keeping Singapore one of the safest cities in the world.
The SPF200 stamps were commissioned to commemorate the SPF’s bicentennial year. This set of six stamps features the various police vocations and highlights the strong police-community partnership that keeps Singapore safe and secure every day, as well as pays tribute to SPF pioneering officers who laid a strong foundation for future generations of officers to build on.
