MDP seminar on Community Policing
At the invitation of Operations Wing and Police College, Chief Superintendent Nigel Grimshaw from the Police Service of Northern Ireland, spoke on the topic of "Community Policing in a Conflict Environment - the Northern Ireland Experience" - at a Management Development Programme (MDP) seminar in Police College on February 29.
Mr Grimshaw is a District Commander in North Belfast, an area having seen some of the worst violence. In his 28 years of service, Mr Grimshaw has seen the development of the peace process in Northern Ireland, where some areas suffered from regular outbursts of serious sectarian rioting and conflict. At the seminar, he shared his insight into the strategy used to build relationships between the police and various sectors of the community, and to develop sustainable partnerships from organisational and local perspectives.
The talk was informative and insightful, providing food for thought for the audience to critically study whether Northern Ireland's experience could be applied in Hong Kong. The talk also saw a lengthy question-and-answer session on many issues.
The next MDP seminar on "Change Management" has been scheduled for April 23, with Prof Andrew Chan Chi-fai from the Chinese University of Hong Kong as speaker.
