More PA appointed by Police Collage
After the open recruitment exercise in April, Police College Director Kevin Woods has formally appointed 88 Peer Advisers (PA) for 2011-12, with effect from June 8.
Since its inception in 2005, the Peer Adviser Scheme (PAS) has developed from strength to strength both in terms of the number of PA and the diverse policing knowledge domains the scheme covers. The number of PA increased to 88 in 2011 from 58 in 2010 .
Meanwhile, two new knowledge domains, namely Traffic and Marine Policing, have been established to meet the development needs of the Force and to support frontline officers in realising their potential through Knowledge Management (KM) under Strategic Action Plan (SAP) 4.5. Representing a broad spectrum of policing knowledge, the pool of PA will continue to be a useful and user-friendly consulting channel for officers.
Apart from the annual recruitment of PA, the PAS KM Champion team led by Senior Superintendent Cheng Tak-ming organises Knowledge Cafe on a regular basis. Knowledge Cafe is a knowledge-sharing forum and has covered a wide range of law enforcement topics since 2009, such as anti-money laundering, domestic violence handling and Non-ethnic Chinese (NEC) policing. The general atmosphere of Knowledge Cafe is candid and informal, with participants sharing not only their successful experience, but also attempts in tackling challenges. This forum has gone a long way toward promoting dialogues among officers and bringing out diverse perspectives of the issues being discussed.
The most recently held Knowledge Cafe on "Understanding the Concept of Social Responsibility and its Relevance to the Force" attracted over 50 participants. The panel speaker, Superintendent Choi Chin-pang, conducted a lively discussion on what social responsibility means to the Force and its relevance and importance to the Force as an SAP Project.
