The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Teresa Cheng inspects new recruits

Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng inspected the passing-out parade for 33 probationary inspectors and 116 recruit police constables at the Police College today.   While speaking at the ceremony, she encouraged the graduates to rise to challenges and strive ahead with perseverance, bravery and fortitude.   Ms Cheng said citizens have a rising expectation towards the quality of public services as society has seen drastic changes in recent years, and Police have been under unprecedented challenges and tests in their work.   Joining the force at this time has fully demonstrated the graduates’ determination, ability, commitment and willingness to serve the community as society’s future pillars, she added.   Ms Cheng also noted that rule of law and national security are the cornerstones of ensuring Hong Kong’s long-term security and sustainable development.   She explained that the Department of Justice and Police perform respective roles in upholding the rule of law and national security, as well as protecting public interest for the steady and enduring growth of “one country, two systems”.   Ms Cheng remarked that national security tops the country’s priority, adding that the aspiration of “one country, two systems” is to uphold national sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity.   She stressed that the Government will strive to fully implement the legal system and enforcement mechanisms to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests.   She said she hoped that all graduates could embrace Police’s vision in ensuring that Hong Kong remains one of the safest and most stable societies in the world.
