    Not like military camps but when the evidence only points to one person and this thing is happening again and again, there are simpler ways to reduce the incidents.

    They have other things to do. You just never see those in the news. ... seriously SG news, especially in english news, is quite filtered to maintain the image.
    Also since there is no hard proof they really cant do anything. Seriously. Things like snatch thief, serial groper/molester etc takes time for them to stake out, set up trap etc. May be they should do the same in this hotel?

    Sometimes it's not what you do but how well you do it. My personal experience with a case at my friends fast food police, the Royal Malaysian Police just called in the suspects, and after few hours, they managed to find all the accomplishes and the stolen customers' wallet and gold chain. There weren't any cctv just some hearsay that these were the last people seen finding the item.

    If you don't have the skills, no matter how you talk or interrogate, you'd never get the results.

    Too much of a hassle to pack and secure the stuff everytime I leave the room, so it's easier if I just don't have them come in at all.
    this is what i do when travel too.. if i need housekeeping i will be in the room doing my own thing... else DND tag is always outside

    Sorry about your items being stolen, but I had some stuff stolen from me in Shangri-La Hotel KL some years back and also nothing from Royal Malaysian Police or Shangri-La Hotel Management. I never stayed there anymore when I travel to KL.

    Azul did you make a fuss, I know of a case in Equatorilal where the hotel actually paid for a stolen laptop.

    What do you think? of course I did. My lost was much more.. inlcuding my passport which had many Visas (my hajj visas, previously US and AU we need a paper Visa, Pakistan, Indian Visas).

    Was supposed to go from KL to Jakarta and had to cancel that can only to to Singapore High Commission to get a paper document to return back to Singapore. Royal Malaysian Police also can't do much and I felt they did little.

    Just learn from this episode and be more viligant in future. And don't stay at the Meritus again.
