Chairman of the Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC) Mr Kwok Lam-kwong and nine IPCC Members, accompanied by IPCC Secretary-General Mr Yu Koon-hing, visited the Emergency Unit of Hong Kong Island (EU HKI) on August 22 with a view to understanding more about the Force's emergency work and the challenges frontline officers encountered.
Director of Management Services Kwok Yam-shu, Assistant Commissioner (Service Quality) Chung Sze-pong and Chief Superintendent of the Complaints and Internal Investigations Branch Cheung Kin-kwong joined the IPCC delegates in the visit.
EU HKI gave a presentation on their duties and demonstrated their equipment to the IPCC delegates. Afterwards, the delegates met with a cross-section of EU officers, who shared their experience, daily challenges and the difficulties encountered during the Mong Kok riot.
The visit increased the understanding of the IPCC and EU HKI, and both sides had a frank exchange of views. One of the officers was pleased to note the IPCC's recognition of the professionalism of the frontline officers. The Complaints Against Police Office will continue to arrange similar visits for the IPCC to other Formations to foster a constructive bilateral relationship.
