Sheng Siong reports 10% drop in thefts
Sheng Siong was the first to roll out the StopWatch Community Safety and Security Programme (CSSP) in its 38 outlets when the Singapore Police Force introduced it in October last year.
The supermarket operator said there was a 10 per cent drop in reported shop thefts from last October to August this year, compared to November 2014 to September last year.
The Commander of Jurong Division, Assistant Commissioner Koh Wei Keong, said shop theft statistics from Sheng Siong looked very promising.
He added that the police appreciate Prime Supermarket's strong support of the programme, which will further aid the police in combating shop theft.
A police spokesman said: "ShopWatch CSSP can be implemented in retail stores and aims to reach out to other supermarkets such as Giant and NTUC in the future."
