For years, the Force has been a caring organisation committed to fulfilling its statutory duties, as well as demonstrating its keen sense of social responsibility. Force members uphold the motto of “serving the community with pride and care” and actively participate in various community works, aiming to promote a caring culture and help the underprivileged.
In 2016, the Force fully participated in and organised diversified schemes for “Community Engagement” and “Environmental Protection” and has been awarded “Caring Organisation” logo by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service for 11 consecutive years. Looking ahead, the Force will join hands with different sectors to carry out its social responsibility for a safe and inclusive Hong Kong.
