A busy February in KM
The Force rolled out a series of Knowledge Management (KM) activities in February. The first activity was “Knowledge Cafe #60” held on February 16 when Police College invited Chief Inspector (CIP) Sean Lin from Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau, who is a Peer Adviser on Information Security, to share with the participants the Force’s information security policies.
Nowadays, computer application and social media networking have become an indispensable part of policing work and daily life. However, the relevant information system and social media platform are exposed to certain security risks. At the sharing session, CIP Lin provided useful information on information security, which included analysis of the risks posed in the social media from a user’s perspective and the corresponding security measures.
On February 26, Police College organised its “College Sharing Series #14” with Honorary College Advisor, Mr Fu Tak-wah, speaking on fundamental assessment theories, different assessment approaches and considerations to be taken in their application. Prior to his retirement, he was the Assistant General Manager of the Assessment Development Division of the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority.
Among those attending the sharing session were staff from the College’s Examinations and Assessment Division as well as officers responsible for examination and assessment in Auxiliary Support Bureau and Marine Region. At the sharing session, Mr Fu shared his views and practical experiences in examinations and assessment. Participants commented that the session had broadened their horizons.
On the same day, Police College invited Superintendent (SP) Ho Chun-chung from Crime New Territories South Region to be the speaker of the “Detective Casebook Series #8”. SP Ho recounted his experiences gained from investigation into the death of health care professionals arising from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The sharing session provided a good opportunity for the participants to acquire the knowledge and techniques for conducting a death inquest in relation to pandemic.
On February 27, “Intellectual 40m Series#12” was held in the Force Library when Senior Training Officer (Training Quality), Ms May Li, shared her experiences of applying “experiential learning and debriefing skills” in both teaching and daily life.
