Low crime rate does not, however, mean that misdemeanors are not being committed in Singapore. In fact, you'll see these Crime Alert signs around the country from time to time.
|Crime alert signs in Singapore|
These Crime Alert signs are placed around Singapore in places where a misdemeanor has taken place in the hopes of locating witnesses and gather information necessary to solve the crime.
I am truly heartened whenever seeing signs like this, not because there has been a crime committed, but because it shows a proactive stance by the authorities to try and resolve misdemeanors in a timely manner.
Hmm... I wonder of our dear old Philippines could be able to implement such a procedure.
