The Regional Crime Prevention Office of New Territories North (RCPO NTN) conducted a workshop on leadership, physical training and fingerprint identification jointly with three non-governmental organisations (NGOs) at JPC@Pat Heung on July 22. The workshop was one of the activities of Project Rightpath, which aim at helping young people in need to get back to the right track.
Thirty youngsters of Project Rightpath attended the workshop with a view to boosting their self-confidence, achieving personal breakthroughs and deepening their understanding of police work. The three co-organisers were the Evangelical Lutheran Church Social Service - Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Children and Youth Services and The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups.
The project was rolled out by RCPO NTN in 2016. Officers have adopted an early intervention approach to refer arrested youths aged from 10 to 18 or students aged from 18 to 24 to NGOs for counselling.
