Vice-Chairman of the Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC) Mr Tse Wai-chuen and seven IPCC Members, accompanied by IPCC Secretary-General Mr Yu Koon-hing, paid a visit to Yuen Long District (YLDIST) on May 17 with a view to understanding more about the work difficulties faced by frontline crime officers.
Director of Management Services Li Kin-fai, Assistant Commissioner (Service Quality) Kwok Yam-shu and Chief Superintendent of the Complaints and Internal Investigations Branch Cheung Kin-kwong accompanied the IPCC delegation throughout the visit.
Assistant District Commander (Crime) of YLDIST Tsang Shuk-yin greeted the IPCC delegates and went along with them to visit an assembly point of the Non-ethnic Chinese. Afterwards, the delegates met with a cross-section of crime officers in a forum, at which both sides had a frank exchange of views. The officers shared their work experience as well as the difficulties encountered and challenges faced in carrying out investigations.
The visit had increased mutual understanding between the IPCC Members and the frontline officers. The Complaints Against Police Office will continue to arrange similar visits for the IPCC to other police formations for the purpose of fostering constructive working relationship of the two sides.
