PMP mentees look at frontline policing
Over 40 mentees of the Police Mentorship Programme (PMP) 2011-12 paid a visit to Kwun Tong District (KTDIST) on November 3, arranged by Recruitment Division for these potential Probationary Inspector (PI) applicants to know more about one of the busiest police districts covering Kwun Tong, Yau Tong, Lam Tin, Tseung Kwan O, Tiu Keng Leng and Clear Water Bay. After the visit, they got a good picture of KTDIST’s operational priorities, management strategies, facilities and equipment.
The visit started with Kwun Tong Divisional Commander Wong Kwong-hing giving briefings on how his district maintained law and order and implemented operational priorities by tackling youth crimes, drug peddling, domestic violence, triad activities, burglary and quick cash crimes. After the briefing, Assistant Divisional Commander (Operations), Chief Inspector Chan Jun-jun, took the mentees on a guided tour of the Report Room and temporary detention cells.
Meeting in Officers' Mess the junior inspectors working in KTDIST, the mentees asked the officers about their jobs and career prospects, as well as the problems they had encountered at work. The mentees also took the opportunity to ask the officers how to prepare for the PI selection interview.
Rounding up their visit, two mentees, Kevin Li of University of Hong Kong and Julia Chan of Chinese University of Hong Kong, on behalf of their fellow mentees, thanked KTDIST Commander Chau Cho-kei and his officers for laying on an interesting programme for them. They also thanked Deputy Head Mentor, Chief Superintendent Pauline Ng, and PMP mentors for joining them on the visit.
