  The new Internal Security Department (ISD) Heritage Centre was opened yesterday. Besides artefacts, such as political banners and bombs, the museum showcases storyboards on security threats like communism and espionage and on ISD operations. While the centre is mainly for training security officers and, therefore, closed to the public, it will allow visits from student leaders of junior colleges, polytechnics and universities, said Home Affairs Minister WONG Kan Seng yesterday. Home Team officers, teachers and other civil servants can also visit the centre, situated at Onraet Road, off the Whitley Road section of the Pan Island Expressway. (Straits Times 21 Mar 2002) (3)
