Mr Lock is the former director of Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

Besides heading the CID, Mr Lock served in various other Government agencies in leadership positions including as Commissioner of Immigration & Checkpoints Authority and as Deputy Secretary of Ministry of Information, Communications & the Arts. Mr Lock left the public service in 2011.

The following is the full list of new MLC members who will serve a two-year term.
1Other than Mr Lock, another notable person among the new appointees is Ms Natasha Zhao, age 30, Digital Management Consultant of QED Consulting.

Ms Zhao was featured in The Straits Times as being among the select few digital media consultants the People’s Action Party (PAP) Ministers and Members of Parliament (MP) used to win social media battle for voters. Commenting to the newspaper about the role she played, Ms Zhao said: “We worked on their online reputation. A good digital engagement plan is best implemented early, during times of peace.”
