CE lauds 7 senior police officers

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today presented the Chief Executive’s Commendation for Government/Public Service to seven serving and retired senior police officers in recognition of their significant contributions to safeguarding national security.   The presentation ceremony for the awards, announced in the Gazette today, was held at Government House.      The Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region was enacted by the National People’s Congress Standing Committee on June 30 last year.   The Hong Kong SAR shoulders the important responsibility for safeguarding national security and the Hong Kong Police Force has established a department for safeguarding national security with law enforcement capacity.   In preparation for the National Security Law’s implementation and setting up its National Security Department, Police had, within a critical time span, urgently completed the preparation for the necessary manpower, equipment, facilities, and the formulation of managerial and operational strategies and procedural guidelines.   In the past few months, the responsible officers presented outstanding leadership, professionalism and courage to shoulder responsibility and unwavering commitment to discharge their duties in safeguarding national security. Their work is commendable.   Amongst them, the seven police officers concerned made personal sacrifices to safeguard national security and ensure the full implementation of the “one country, two systems” policy, demonstrating steadfastness and fearlessness.   The Chief Executive fully recognised and commended their work.
