THE Junior Police Call (JPC) annual meeting was held at the Police Officers' Club recently, giving all parties involved in the scheme a chance to exchange views and experiences. More than 200 JPC representatives, members of district JPC councils, police JPC staff and JPC honorary presidents joined the get-together. Commissioner of Police Eddie Hui Kei-on took the opportunity to express his gratitude to them for their contributions to the Junior Police Call movement. He said the JPC had grown to be the largest youth organisation in Hong Kong with a membership of more than 180,000, adding that over 2,000 new membership applications were received every month. Praising JPC members' support for the police in fighting crime, Mr Hui noted that they had taken part in more than 400 fight-crime activities in the past year. He said the Junior Police Call scheme was aimed at fostering a good relationship between youths and the police and providing youths with a range of wholesome activities to let them spend their leisure time meaningfully. JPC council members said they were very happy to have the chance to meet other Junior Police Call staff and honorary presidents.
