Singapore may be one of the safest countries on Earth, but that doesn’t mean that crime doesn’t happen. In fact, the Singapore Police Force has recently teamed up with Pokemon to help spread awareness. This includes doing a special event complete with dancing Pikachu, as well as several posters.
The Jurong Police Division, together with the Pokemon Company, recently held an event last 10 March 2018 at Jurong Point Shopping Centre. Commander of Jurong Police Division, Assistant Commissioner of Police (AC) Koh Wei Keong and Mr Susumu Fukunaga, Corporate Officer of The Pokemon Company, both attended the event. Oh, and as mentioned earlier, the dancing Pikachu were there as well.
This campaign has three key messages, and they also come with their own poster featuring Pikachu and Meowth.
a) “Don’t Take Dimly Lit Shortcuts” – as we need to be alert to our surroundings to prevent being victims of crime
b) “Don’t Buy Counterfeit Goods” – as counterfeiting is an Intellectual property crime
c) “Don’t Use Your Mobile Phone While Driving” – as we must ensure the safety of our loved ones and others during driving
