Also, game booths were set up by HsinChu County Public Health Bureau and Wufeng Township Public Health Center as one of the main features of the carnival, in order to provide information regarding Second Generation National Health Insurance and to promote medication safety and healthy drinking habits.
‘The policing carnival was fully funded by deferred fines of the HsinChu District Prosecutors office’, Police Commissioner Huang said. ‘By using the aforementioned fund the police force was able to promote basic legal knowledge in the indigenous community so that the local residents would have a better understanding of these laws. Anti-fraud measures, the consequences of drinking and driving and promoting the safety of women, children and young people were provided in the game booths. Furthermore, a number of governmental institutions were invited to join the event providing knowledge in each of their specialised areas which added extra value to the event, these included the Indigenous People Affairs Administration Department, the Social Affairs Department, the Agriculture Department of HsinChu County Government as well as the HsinChu Forest District Office and the HsinChu County Service Center of N.I.A..’
