Leading by example

Tsuen Wan District Commander Tony Ho Tse-tong believes in promoting a healthy lifestyle by encouraging officers of all ranks to voluntarily arrange and take part in a variety of meaningful off duty activities

TONY Ho Tse-tong, Tsuen Wan District Commander, together with the enthusiastic support of a group of like-minded colleagues, actively promotes a healthy lifestyle programme of activities for officers of all ranks, including civilian staff and their family members working in Tsuen Wan District. The programme encourages voluntray participation in worthwhile off duty activities in order to reduce stress and promote positive values.

Mr Ho emphasied that these activities should be held outside of duty hours, with the ultimate goal being for officers to organise their own activities allowing the concept of a healthy lifestyle to become a "norm" - a way of life.

"A small number of officers might participate in these activties merely to show support for their senior officers, to get away from office duties or because they are free of charge," admits the District Commander, "but this type of attitude must be corrected and officers helped to understand the real benefits received from living a healthy lifestyle."

To Mr Ho, the concept of a healthy lifestyle can be broad: " A married officer told me he couldn't participate in worthwhile pastimes when off duty because he spent most of his spare time looking after his children and helping his wife with housework. I told him that was a healthy lifestyle and I hoped he'd continue and perhaps influence other colleagues to be likewise."

In order to develop a healthy lifestyle programme, a survey of officers' interests in the District was conducted. Based on its results, different activity groups were formed for swimming, fishing, badminton, volleyball, hiking, xi kung and language learning as well as Potential Officer study group.

Mr Ho emphasised that these activities should be held outside of duty hours, with the ultimate goal being for officers to organise their own activites allowing the concept of a healthy liftstyle to become a "norm" --- a way of lift.

Officers from Lei Muk Shue Division took the initiative to organise a basketball team and strengthened community relations by inviting students from several secondary schools in the area to play.

District Commander Ho: "To ensure spare time is spent positively and to ensure ways in which one manages stress are productives should convey and promote a healthy lifestyle message and encourage all officers to make such activities second nature.

"As police,we are entrusted by the community we serve with the responsibility of upholding and enforcing the rule of law. In order to do this, every office must be of good character and set a proper example by obeying the law and living a healthy lifestyle. Performing our duties well will inevitably follow."
