    With effect from 1st January 2019, security guards in Singapore who display errant behaviour while on the job can face a fine of not more than S$2000 and/or a jail sentence of not more than 3 months.

    Errant behaviour here includes dozing off, using abusive language and going missing from one's deployment point without a valid reason.

    The government went ahead and implemented the new regulations despite the fact that full-time guards in Singapore work 72 hours per week. And some agencies have been known to make their employees work 24-hour shifts.
