TBHQ provide Strategic Traffic and Road Management Training
In light of the increasing number of major infrastructural projects coming on stream, and the need to better prepare officers for discharging traffic and road management duties, Traffic Branch Headquarters (TBHQ) tailor-made a 10-day course for 27 officers from February 6 to 17.
Incorporating both practical and theoretical elements of road management training, this over-subscribed course was delivered by two experienced experts from the UK, Mr Graham Skinner and Mr Saul Jeavons, on Police College campus. The course covered many topics such as Road and Street Design, Policing Traffic Management Incidents, Road Safety Audits, Policing Road Works, and Emergency Traffic Management.
Senior Superintendent Cheng Tak-ming, Head of Traffic Management and Prosecutions Bureau at TBHQ, in his opening address to the participants, pointed out that the Force always sees a need to provide more professional training to traffic officers, not just for supporting frontline officers but also attracting more talented officers to join traffic branch.
Besides the 27 participants at the ranks of Police Constable to Senior Inspector, the course also attracted two Administrative Officers from Transport and Housing Bureau and a number of Chief Inspectors and Superintendents, who attended some of the presentations and shared their experiences from both policy-making and practical perspectives. To make the course more comprehensive, TBHQ invited officers from Highways Department, Transport Department and ICAC to deliver presentations as guest speakers.
At the conclusion of the course on February 17, Assistant Commissioner (Support) Chiu Wai-yin presented certificates to the participants, while Chief Superintendent (Traffic) Steve Verralls gave an update on the developments in traffic policing.
