Following introduction of the KM journey, we explain the number "3" in this Knowing KM Series. The number "3" represents the three KM Pilot Districts which are responsible for studying the feasibility of decentralising KM development at formation level.
Starting in April last year, Police College piloted the Formation KM Champion Scheme in Kowloon City District (KCDIST), Tsuen Wan District (TWDIST) and Lantau District (LTDIST) to encourage frontline formations to capture and share the valuable knowledge and experience of their officers. Since commencement of the pilot scheme, each district developed its own KM programmes to cater for its special needs.
For example, KCDIST shares knowledge through "City Snapshot" and lunchtime gatherings; TWDIST organises periodic events such as Knowledge Café, "See Foo" Collection Competition and Mini Video Projects; whilst LTDIST adopts a bottom-up approach to collect views for knowledge sharing, holds regular group meetings to identify topics for frontline officers and finally consolidates and uploads the topics for sharing.
Some formations are actively considering joining the pilot scheme. Those wishing to do or know about the pilot scheme are welcome to contact the Research Centre of the Specialised Services Training Centre.
Last month, the Specialised Services Training Centre held the 5th "Detective Casebook Series - The Investigation of Murders and Robbery Gangs" - delivered by Superintendent Joseph Yeung and the 6th "Intellectual 40m Series - Development of Strategic Leadership" - by Mr Tang How-kong, former Director of Management Services. Both series have been enjoying good support since their launching. Watch out for the next sharing session.
