They would generally believe what is told to them by someone of power or someone they know," Prof Ho said.

They have initiated the Elderly Crime Prevention Ambassador scheme, aimed at raising crime prevention awareness among seniors. They have also launched the Silver Watch Group scheme, which not only educates senior citizens against crimes such as robbery, snatch theft and scams, but also enlists their help as "eyes and ears" for suspicious or criminal activity in the heartland. The police advise the elderly to: Be wary if approached directly by strangers or through telephone or e-mail. Check on the credibility of information or messages that they receive.
Not transfer any money via remittance agencies, banks or any other means to anyone they do not know.

Going into politics is not an easy decision. I have four young children and my wife and I were concerned about how this will affect our family and the time I have with them. I eventually managed to persuade my wife to support my decision.
I explained that we are at a very critical juncture of our nation's development. And this is a time when we need people who can contribute to step forward.

So there are areas where I can make use of my past experience, both from the civil service and also from my community work, to benefit residents of Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC. What issues will you focus on?

There is also a range of shops nearby: It is a vibrant HDB heartland. Married to a housewife, They have four sons aged between nine and Jogging, soccer, golf I have been involved in charity fund-raising, social enterprise and the labour movement.
I've also had two years in the grassroots, as vice-chairman of the Citizens Consultative Committee for Bishan East. Going into politics gives me a different, bigger platform to do more for people. You can help to shape policies by gathering feedback on how policies affect people on the ground. I feel my private sector experience is a plus. I've spent time working with people from all levels, nationalities and cultures and I've been in the hospitality industry for 15 years.
I think this will be very useful on the ground when I interact with residents. The key role I want to play is to understand how policy impacts the ground. You can't change the policy for an exception.
