Crime Prevention Bureau Presents
Security Services Best Training Award 2018
CPB and Vocational Training Council (VTC) co-organized the “2018 Security Services Best Training Awards Presentation Ceremony”, which was held successfully at Police Headquarters on 22 March 2019.
Director of Operations, Mr Raymond SIU, Chairlady of the Security Services Training Board, VTC, Ms Jane Curzon LO, J.P. and Senior Assistant Executive Director of VTC, Ms Gladys YAM were invited as the Guests of Honor. A total of 101 awards were presented to security companies in recognition of their efforts in enhancing professional competence of their staff, among which 66 were presented with the Gold Award, 22 with the Silver Award, 8 with the Bronze Award and 5 with the Merit Award. The Best Training Awards aim at promoting training initiatives and recognising security companies that consistently offer security services related training to their security guards to enhance their professional competence to meet the challenging needs of Hong Kong and assist police to prevent crime.
Speaking at the Ceremony, Director of Operations said “The Police have just announced the Strategic Directions (SDs) for the next three years. One of the SDs, "Policing WITH the community" is closely related to the security industry. In the next three years, the police will strengthen the public awareness of crime prevention. For example, when security guards witness crimes, suspicious persons or activities, they should inform the Police as soon as possible so as to bring the criminals to justice. Property management companies can also strengthen the security of housing estates, and security guards can also strengthen liaison with the Police. In addition, the Police will also enhance interactive communication with different sectors of the community including the security industry through different social media to raise awareness of crime prevention, crime fighting and shared responsibility of public safety. The "Security Service Best Training Awards" is one of the best initiatives to demonstrate this policy.
