The three-week Standard Crime Prevention Course (SCPC) organised by Crime Prevention Bureau (CPB) came to a successful conclusion on May 10, offering a total of 22 trainees professional crime prevention knowledge and introducing to them the relevant legislation and state-of-the-art security equipment.
Through lectures and fieldwork assignments, the trainees learned how to apply crime prevention theories and techniques at real life scenarios so that they would be able to provide professional crime prevention advice to the public.
On the last day of the course, Chief Superintendent (CSP) (Crime Support) Matthew Hemmings presented certificates to the trainees and congratulated them on completing the course. He also thanked CPB staff and guest speakers for their support that had contributed to the success of the course.
CSP Hemmings also expressed special thanks to Mr Caroll Mann, who has been providing SCPC trainees with locksmithing knowledge since 1983 as well as expert locksmithing advice to CPB from time to time. Mr Mann is therefore well respected, and known as "Master Mann", among crime prevention officers.
In recognition of his 30-year contribution to the Force, CSP Hemmings presented to Mr Mann a Certificate of Appreciation signed by Assistant Commissioner (Crime) Lo Mung-hung. He also looked forward to Mr Mann's continuous support for CPB.
