Falling in love because of understanding. When I was at primary school, I joined Junior Police Call. It was so fortunate that I was given chance to join Police Mentorship Programme at university. All these experiences allowed me to understand police work more. The diversity and uniqueness of police work attracted me to join the Force. I extremely respect for police officers’ service-oriented and never-give-up spirit. After graduation, I immediately applied for the post of probationary inspector, however, I failed the extended interview. Thereafter, I joined the Immigration Department as an Immigration Officer. While I found that I was in particular interested in crime investigation and had a strong affection to police work. Therefore, I decided to apply for probationary inspector again. I am so honored to be part of the Force and so glad to be the winner of Brian Slevin Trophy, Baton of Honor and Commissioner’s Certificate of Academic Merit during the 36-weeks training. In the future, I would like to attain “Life influences life” to serve the community with my positive image, pride and care.

I am an active and outgoing person who like to participate in challenging activities, such as surfing and rock climbing. Thus, I immediately applied for the challenging post of Police Constable after obtaining a Higher Diploma. To better prepare myself, I further studied a Bachelor degree of Art in Policing and Public Order in 2012. I have gained valuable knowledge that I can apply in my daily duites. Futhermore, the Force also let me develop my stengths. I joined the Force Search Unit (High Rise) as my volunteer secondary duty. In addition to normal duties, I also provide additional operational capability, expertise and crucial professional support to the Force. In order to reinforce my experience and knowledge on rope access, I was nominated to attend a High Rise Training in Germany in February 2018. On the other hand, the Force has various posts and each post are challenging and mission-oriented. Although the Force have over 30 thousand members, we have the same vision which is "That Hong Kong remains one of the safest and most stable societies in the world". I will continue to demonstrate my best and promote the Force to the public. I hope that more people can become my colleague and contribute to our city, Hong Kong.
Year of Joining Police: 2010 Previous Work Experience: Waiter
When I was young, I always watch police movie and wanted to be a policeman. Therefore, after graduating with an associate degree, I applied for the job and successfully completed the 27-week training. Since then, I have joined the force more than eight years. Within the eight years, I have worked in various posting, such as Patrol Sub-Unit, Police Tactical Unit, Task Force, Special Duty Squad, Boundary Control Point Sub-Unit, Catering, Clubs and Sports Group(CCSG). The most unforgettable incident is that when I was patrolling on the street, a woman reported that her 6-year-old daughter was missing. At that moment, the woman was anxious and lost her mind. So I led her to the place that she had been to with her daughter. Finally, we found her daughter sleeping on the bench inside a park. The mother felt grateful and embraced the daughter immediately. After this incident, being a policeman gave me a sense of responsibility and encouraged me to help the public. Apart from this, I also used my free time to study and improve myself. Finally, I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration at the Open University for a better career prospect.

I had participated in the Hong Kong Award for Young People (HKAYP) organized by Hong Kong Police Operating Authority, and was an Activities Training Organizer of Police Public Relations Branch before joining the Hong Kong Police Force. I still remember when I was achieving the HKAYP award, I had to take up trainings and reach a certain standard. Amongst vary challenges, orienteering was especially difficult to me as a person that seldom work out. But thanks to the systematic trainings provided by the Police volunteers, I was encouraged and physically improved, which helped me to achieve a gold award ultimately. With the inspiration of the Police volunteers, I aspired to join the Police Force and was successfully recruited. My time in Police College was really difficult, but along with the knowledge received and challenges met, I learnt to perform steadily. I felt proud with the resilience that me and other trainees showed during the training. In addition, I wish that my personal experience could influence more youngsters to join the Force, and serve our community in the future.
Name: Mr FUNG Yun-wo Post: Inspector of Police Eduction： Master Degree in International Security in UK (2010) Year of Joining Police: 2015 Previous Work Experience： Banking management trainee
When I was a secondary student, the 6th WTO Ministerial Conference was held in Hong Kong. Whilst policing the Conference, the Hong Kong Police had to handle multiple public order events, including protests by radical Korean farmers to ensure public safety and public order. Since then, I strongly appreciated the great contribution the Hong Kong Police had made to safeguard the city and wanted to be a part of it. After I have obtained my Master Degree in the United Kingdom, I immediately applied for the post of Probationary Inspector, however, I failed twice in the written examination and the extended interview respectively due to lack of preparation. With full determination and good preparation, I was eventually selected as Probationary Inspector in 2015, and awarded the Baton of Honour – the Best All-round Inspector subsequent to the foundation training at Police College. In the past three years, I have gained a great deal of job satisfaction by serving the community as a police officer, particularly when I have been sparing no effort in unveiling the truth of every case during investigation. I deem serving in the Force as my lifelong career.
Name: Mr CHOY Kwan-ho Post: Police Constable Eduction： HKDSE (2016) Year of Joining Police: 2017 Previous Work Experience： Nil
I joined the Force as a police constable upon graduation from secondary school because it has been my dream job when I was little. I am delighted to learn that the 27-week Recruit Police Constable training programme was accredited by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications in 2014. Upon completion of the training programme, the Recruit Police Constables will be awarded with professional certificates at QF Level 4 (at the same level of an Associate Degree or a Higher Diploma in the academic sector). It is also articulated with degree programmes of some tertiary institutions with credit exemption. Therefore, I can better equip myself for career development by attaining continuous studies at my leisure time whilst dedicating myself to my job. My family also fully supports my decision of being a police officer. When I was under training at Police College, a course instructor told me that “we are most helpful in the eyes of most Hong Kong people.” It keeps reminding me to help those in need in a professional manner. I wish my experience would inspire more youths to join us and serve the community together.
Name: Mr Stewart Alexander Parin Post: Police Constable Eduction： Bachelor Degree in Sociology (2015) Year of Joining Police: 2017 Previous Work Experience： Football player, Auxiliary Police
Before joining the Force, I was a professional football player and an Auxiliary Police. Between 2013 and 2015, I played in the First Division and the Premier League in Hong Kong, as well as the Hong Kong Representative Football Team for the Olympic Games. In 2016, I was nominated to join overseas training at football teams in Chengdu, UK and Spain, and I was offered a contract. After I underwent trainings for a number of weeks, I was even offered a professional player contract by those teams. However, I opted for joining the Force as a regular police officer. It was because I was totally impressed by the police officers’ senses of purpose and righteousness during my 4-year service as an auxiliary police officer. As a result, I strongly believed that it was the most ideal career for me. My non-ethnic Chinese fellows, as an employer advocates equal opportunities, the Force welcomes any earnest persons meeting the entry requirements, including language proficiency; fitness standards; and sharing the Force’s values etc, to serve the community by joining the Force. I will be fully committed to my duties and contribute myself to the society, as well as encourage more potential non-ethnic Chinese to join us and serve the community!
