An interesting collaboration has arisen between the Singapore Police and the Pokemon Company. This new campaign highlights how to prevent crime during the March school holidays and launched on March 10th. The collaboration saw Pokemon booths and also crime prevention booths at Jurong Point mall. There was a Pikachu parade and dance and also meet and greet sessions with Pikachu. The campaign will run till March 18th and fixates on these points:
The messages are:
1. Don’t take dimly lit shortcuts
2. Don’t buy counterfeit goods; and
3. Don’t use your mobile phone while driving.
“With the appeal of the Pokemon characters, we hope to be able to reach out to more members of the public on crime prevention,” he said. “We certainly look forward to more opportunities like this in the future.”
