The police said that Commissioner Ng is not acquainted with Ms Goh and that recent events should not dampen their annual fund raising efforts.
It also explained how a photo of Commissioner Ng shaking hands with Ms Esther Goh had been taken. The photo has been circulating online.
"Mr Ng Joo Hee deeply regrets that the photograph has been misused by irresponsible persons online as a basis for making vulgarities, inanities and all manner of mischievous innuendos," the statement said.
The police said the photo was taken on Oct 12 last year at a police charity concert held to benefit the Community Chest.
At the event, Commissioner Ng presented tokens to donors who gave more than $10,000, one of whom was NCS, represented by Ms Esther Goh.
She was previously a director of business development at the company.
The police also said they hoped recent events will not dampen support for their annual fund raising efforts.
"It will be unfortunate and most unfair should the Community Chest and the charities that it supports suffer because of the actions of a few misguided and irresponsible individuals," it said.
Ms Esther Goh has since left the company, The Straits Times said.
