Crime Prevention Tips

Police would like to share some steps you can take to keep yourself and all our loved ones safe.

  • Be alert and attentive to your surroundings, especially when you are in a crowded and confined space (i.e. in public entertainment night spots, in lifts, MRT, buses etc.) or alone with a stranger that moves very near to you.
  • If someone rushes into the lift at the last minute and you are alone, it is safer to step out and take the next one.
  • If someone is following you, head to a crowded area; if someone moves uncomfortably close to you, move away from them if possible (e.g. someone deliberately stands or sits uncomfortably close to you in a bus or MRT).
  • Avoid going out at night alone. If you have to, go out in a group or get someone (parent, close friend) to accompany you.
  • Avoid letting your young children wander around alone, teach them to be wary and move away from strangers who try to get close to or touch them.
  • Consider investing in a shrill alarm for you and your loved ones as they can come in handy to sound for help during emergencies.
