POLICE have pledged to move quickly to combat worsening triad activities in Tuen Mun and Yuen Long. Senior police officials told sub-committee meeting of the Legislative Council's security panel that the two districts had serious gang problems. And they told legislators the proposals put forward in the recent Police Management Review to set up anti-triad squads would be given top priority. Democratic Party legislator Zachary Wong Wai-yin asked why the number of triad-related cases in these districts was double that of areas such as Sha Tin and Tai Po. Assistant Commissioner of Police (Crime) David Hodson said the activities of the Sun Yee On, accounted for the rise in gang troubles in Tuen Mun, while Yuen Long had a historical background of triad problems. Principal Assistant Secretary for Security Jack Chan Jick-chi said the Security Branch would give priority to funding the district and regional anti-triad units. Other areas covered in the review included Regional Command and Control Centres and the Narcotics Bureau. Mr Hodson said co-operation between the Narcotics Bureau and the FBI in the United States and the authorities in Canada after 1997 should remain unchanged.
