So, you thought it’s only the Japanese police that teams up with anime and video games to spread crime awareness? Well, it looks like our own Singapore Police Force is also doing it, and they’re doing it with Pokemon!
This is all part of a new collaboration between the the Jurong Police Division and The Pokémon Company. They even held a special event at the Jurong Point Shopping Centre to help spread awareness about the various crimes being committed. This includes piracy and counterfeit goods, using your mobile phones while driving, and avoiding dark and dimly-lit areas.
Commander of Jurong Police Division, AC Koh Wei Keong, said “This is the first time the Singapore Police Force is collaborating with The Pokémon Company on crime prevention. With the appeal of the Pokémon characters, we hope to be able to reach out to more members of the public on crime prevention. We certainly look forward to more opportunities like this in the future. Through this campaign, we hope the public will have a greater awareness not to take dimly lit shortcuts, not to buy counterfeits goods and not to use their mobile devices while driving.”
