Police hold passing-out parade

Standing Committee on Disciplined Services Salaries & Conditions of Service Chairman Chui Hong-sheung today inspected the passing-out parade for 36 probationary inspectors and 121 recruit constables at the Police College.      Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Chui said Police have contributed significantly to the stability and prosperity of society since its establishment.   In the past year, apart from combatting crimes, the force also spared no effort in supporting the Government in the fight against the epidemic, such as implementing quarantine orders and carrying out contact tracing work on confirmed COVID-19 cases.   Mr Chui noted that Police’s work is diverse and complex. Over the years, political, legal and social changes have broadened the scope and increased the complexity of policing work, and have impacted the working environment of the force.   He said the standing committee is now conducting a Grade Structure Review for the Disciplined Services Grades. It will consider all relevant information and balance all factors to come up with a recommendation that will be conducive to the sustained development of the force and other disciplined services, and at the same time, benefit the whole community.   He encouraged all graduates to keep up with their professionalism, hold tight to their beliefs, and carry out their duties in a fair and impartial manner, whatever the circumstances, while serving the community.
