The Commercial Crime Bureau (CCB) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States jointly organised the "Transnational and Financial Crime Intelligence Gathering and Analysis Training Course" between July 30 and August 3. Twenty-nine Inspectorate officers attended the course in the first four days whilst 11 Superintendent grade officers joined the last half-day of training. These officers came from the Crime Wing and various Regions.
Chief Superintendent of CCB Tsang Ching-fo, in his welcoming remarks, highlighted the importance of multi-agency partnership in gathering intelligence to combat transnational financial crime.
Launched with the FBI in 2016, the annual course aims to enhance officers' professionalism and capability in combating transnational financial crime. Through lectures, case studies, group exercises and individual assignments, the course enables the participants to learn more about the nature and trends of transnational and financial crimes, strengthen their capacity and confidence in intelligence gathering and analysis as well as compiling the related reports.
