The Singapore Police Force (SPF) has launched a “smart clubbing” campaign in a bid to raise awareness on the common crimes occurring within entertainment outlets.
According to an article by The Straits Times, the campaign was unveiled on Wednesday at a Singapore nightspot, Zouk. Clubbers will be greeted with posters and notice boards with warnings of common crimes that occur at such places. SPF aims to reduce crime in these areas and it has also trained the staff at nightspots to be proactive and vigilant of those who are not able to handle their behavior.
The campaign was also supported by the National Crime Prevention Council and entertainment outlets in Clarke Quay, Orchard Road, Marina Bay and Sentosa.
As part of the campaign, a video featuring local entertainer, Irene Ang, was posted on Facebook. In the video, Ang represents a clubber who takes measures to prevent any situations that might lead to a fight or a crime. She provides tips for both genders to adopt measures to protect themselves.
