The first time she entered the indoor gun range at the Aetos Complex in Corporation Drive, the sound of gunfire and smell of gunpowder scared her.
But Madam Janna Rahiman, 48, a grandmother of four, was determined to be an armed auxiliary police officer.
It was the job she wanted after stints as a factory worker, cashier, cabby and freelance property agent.
Thanks to Workforce Singapore's Professional Conversion Programme (PCP), Madam Janna is now a gun-toting guardian of our borders.
Madam Janna started training as an armed auxiliary police officer in September last year.
