PMP 2011/12 concludes successfully
The closing ceremony of the Police Mentorship Programme (PMP) 2011/12 was held on March 16, following a visit to Marine Police Regional Headquarters by 58 mentees and 25 mentors. New Territories North Regional Commander Chau Kwok-leung, who is the Head Mentor of the PMP, officiated at the ceremony.
During the visit, officers introduced to the mentees the history, structure and duties of Marine Region. After visiting the Regional Command Control Centre and taking a close look at the Small Boat Division's equipment, the mentees had a better idea of marine policing and the career path of an Inspector in Marine Region.
Speaking at the closing ceremony, Mr Chau pointed out that the PMP's year-round activities had given the mentees a better understanding of the Force, police duties and the roles of an Inspector in different units, inspiring them to serve the community as a police officer upon graduation. Since the launch of the PMP in 2004, 100 mentees had joined the Force as Probationary Inspectors, Mr Chau added.
Mr Chung Hung-fung, a retired Chief Superintendent and former Head Mentor, attended the ceremony as a guest. Mr Chau took this opportunity to present him with a commemorative album for his contribution to the PMP.
During the ceremony, the mentees expressed gratitude for the assistance and support of their mentors by giving different performances, as well as photo and videos presentations. Mentee Au Ching-man from the University of Hong Kong said she, with the help and encouragement of her mentor, had set a goal to join the Force and would do her best to equip herself for the coming challenges.
Another mentee, Chu Shui-fung from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, said he was impressed with the professionalism and the job of the Small Boat Unit, adding that he would like to join Marine Region upon graduation.
