The most powerful gang in Singapore

Do you know the name of this gang? 

Certain words or images just stick to your mind like stains on the floor that could not be removed. 

Going back a few decades ... I was in sec 1 in my new secondary school. One day, a tall serious-looking man came into our classroom. He was not one of our subject teachers. He seemed to be lecturing us. I could not remember what he was there for or what he was talking about. But somehow this statement stuck in my mind - "I have the protection of the most powerful gang in Singapore - the Singapore Police Force."

Later I knew that he was the discipline master. From the statement I still remembered, I think he was telling us not to join gangs and not to be intimidated by gangsters.
