The Anti-Deception Coordination Centre (ADCC) launched a four-month promotion campaign, “Anti-Deception Everywhere”, on March 4. A promotion truck has been deployed to visit 69 locations across the territory to disseminate anti-deception messages to members of the public.
On March 4, Chief Superintendent Wong Chi-kwong, Senior Superintendents Cheng Lai-ki and Yau Kin-hung of the Commercial Crime Bureau officiated at the launching ceremony of the promotion truck at the Police Headquarters. They then led ADCC officers to distribute anti-deception souvenirs and leaflets to members of the public.
As a prelude to the “Anti-Deception Month” in April, ADCC has deployed the promotion truck as a means to promote the “Anti-Scam Helpline 18222” and alert members of the public to various defrauding tricks. ADCC officers, together with Regional Crime Prevention Offices, Police Community Relations Offices, community leaders and other stakeholders, distribute anti-deception leaflets at locations where the promotion truck stops. Members of the public are reminded to stay vigilant against deception and call 18222 immediately if a scam is suspected. The promotion truck is equipped with a large screen to broadcast anti-deception videos produced by the Force in a bid to raise public awareness of anti-deception.
