Bukit Merah West Neighbourhood Police Centre has a unique way of fighting crime.

Memes.

If you thought being part of the police is to be all serious all day, you can check out the police centre's most recent TikTok video:

They utilised TikTok's swirl effect without breaking a sweat or missing a beat.

Posted on

Needless to say, many were tickled by the on point video.

More memes

This wasn't the only meme the police station posted though.

They have been at it for a while now.

Here are more gems from their Facebook page:

Making memes seemed to be a relatively recent idea, as their

Speaking the same language

During a press briefing on the annual crime report, the National Crime Prevention Council told Mothership that it was challenging to reach out to youths, who may be more vulnerable to cybercrime.

Cybercrime, which includes scams, was the main driver of crime in Singapore in 2019, rising by a hefty 53.5 per cent year-on-year.

NCPC had shared that although they were doing their best to warn Singaporean youths, even engaging local media companies to endorse crime prevention, their words sometimes fall on deaf ears.

So maybe, the key to engaging young people might just come in the form of dank memes.

As seen in the positive reactions to the post, people love stuff that hacks their attention.

Bukit Merah NPC, you're doing it right.
