西九龍總區今日舉辦活動,最主要喺希望透過唔同方式去教育、宣傳,提醒市民大眾要尊重、愛護動物,從而感染大眾對動物嘅憐愛,以及提高社會各界對防止殘酷對待動物嘅關注意識。

會場入面,擺放咗好多唔同內容嘅展板,包括有動物相關嘅法例、我哋西九龍總區處理過有關動物嘅個案、亦都有飼養動物嘅知識,除咗資訊性,我哋亦都安排咗兩個同動物有關嘅攤位遊戲俾大家玩,我哋亦都邀請咗三間動物機構分別係香港愛護動物協會、香港兔友協會、香港動物領養中心設置攤位,提供資訊俾大家。

今日好多嘉賓同出席者都帶咗自己嘅寵物一齊嚟支持我哋嘅活動,大會亦都誠邀左警犬隊兩隻警犬嚟到同大家表演,佢哋分別就係Sunny同埋Dave,咁Sunny除咗係警犬之外,佢另外仲有一個身份就係我哋警隊嘅「守護之星」,佢經常會走進社區同市民交流,展現親切友善嘅一面,以宣揚「守護動物、尊重生命」的訊息。

警隊有個計劃叫「守護成長好拍檔」,邀請了「中央諮詢委員會」嘅委員為2020年秋季出生嘅12隻警犬BB命名,佢哋嘅名全部都係以B字為首。今日我哋就請咗其中3隻分別係 Bobo, Bailey and Bagel 嚟到現場同大家見面,而為佢命名嘅動物守護社區大使計劃中央諮詢委員會委員 李漢雄 先生BBS MH JP、陳香蓮 女士 JP ,同埋 王嘉恩 博士 MH 到會場支持。

各位嘉賓亦即場參與我哋「我撐動物挑戰賽」嘅活動,令到整個教育日的氣氛推至高峰,而今日整個活動係一片歡樂聲完成。


In October 2020, Kowloon West Regional Crime Prevention Office organised a Smartphone Photography and Video-making Contest on the theme of interaction with animals. The contest has in total received submissions of over 1800 photos and 300 videos which captured not only funny snapshots of many animals but also the heartwarming moments between the kids and fur-babies of many families. The award-winning submissions have been shared on the Region’s platform to promote police-public partnership in protecting animals.


Building Partnership with Animal-related Stakeholders

In 2020, officers of Kowloon West Regional Crime Prevention Office have visited over 160 animal-related stakeholder groups in the Region; such as pet shops, animal clinics, animal non-profit making organisations and pet-loving groups, etc, to enlist support from animal lovers and raise the public awareness in preventing cruelty to animals. During the visits, officers have not only given their contacts to the stakeholders to support timely report to be made by the public, but have also distributed leaflets and souvenirs to them.
