Blogger Phillip Ang in his post in December last year titled, ‘Cardboard policemen can help deter criminals meh?‘, showed how effective Singapore Police Force’s anti-theft standees are.
In the wake of the robbery of StanChart bank in Holland Village on Thursday (7 Jul), some Facebook users were again wondering how effective the anti-crime standees are.
