Knowledge Café looks at JPO career development
A total of 257 officers attended a briefing on the Development Programme for Junior Officers with Potential and Knowledge Café in the Auditorium at Police Headquarters on January 6.
The development programme was launched in 2007 to promote and facilitate the continuous learning and career development of junior officers. So far, 46 mentees of the programme have been promoted to Inspector, six to Station Sergeant and 22 to Sergeant.
During the briefing, Superintendent (JPO) Lee Chi-wai interviewed two serving mentors, Chief Inspector (CIP) Lam Hung-chuen and Ip Ka-yee, on their own developments in the Force.
An ex-mentee, Inspector Oscar Yip, shared his experience of job attachment, while CIP Suzette Foo, a former Extended Interview Director, also spoke of her observations of candidates' performances at Extended Interviews.
The second part of the day was devoted to Knowledge Cafe on "Preparing for being a Probationary Inspector", with Senior Superintendent (SSP) Cheng Tak-ming, Champion of the Force Knowledge Management Peer Advisers Scheme, and Superintendent (Recruitment) Lee Chung-wah playing the role of facilitators.
SSP Kung Wai-kwok, former Chairman of Final Interview Board (FIB) for Probationary Inspectors, talked about his observations and experience of chairing the FIB. He emphasised that candidates should develop the ability of critical thinking and be able to clearly explain their decisions and answers during the interview.
Two Force-entry Inspectors, IP Chau Man-hin and Leung Siu-ling said determination and continuous self-enhancement are the keys to their success.
The briefing attracts about 260 officers
