Bukit Merah East Neighbourhood Police Centre (NPC) held its first "Silver Watch Group Crime Prevention Road Show" at Radin Mas Community Club on Sunday.

The roadshow was organised to educate residents, especially the elderly, on crime prevention. The event is part of the Silver Watch Group (SWG) Programme.

The SWG programme is a joint Community Safety and Security Programme (CSSP) by the Bukit Merah East NPC targeting elderly residents in the Chinatown, Jalan Bukit Merah and Radin Mas estates. It was officially launched on March 18 last year.

The programme seeks to impart elderly residents with crime prevention knowledge.
