SPF: here’s why police patrols needed
It’s my firm belief that many cases of murder, manslaughter, robberies, burglaries, assaults and other acts of mischief could have been prevented if SPF had had proper and effective police patrols.
Acts of crime occur because of an opportunity and the perception that they wouldn’t be caught. In Singapore, cops are an endangered species so criminal elements take their chances.
To illustrate my point on the need for police patrols: recently six men posed as NEA officers to gain entry into a house to rob the resident.
A police patrol could have prevented the crime eg questioning the men’s credentials.
