Greetings from chief
LAST year was another successful one for the Junior Police Call Scheme and this is reflected in the following Lunar New message conveyed to the JPC members by the Commissioner of Police, Mr Li Kwan-ha.
''I should like to wish all JPC members and leaders good health and prosperity in the New Year.
''Your participation in a wide range of community service and fight against criminal activities over the past year has been both meaningful and commendable.
''I hope you will continue to take part in the JPC activities and to serve the community in the coming year. Together we will help to make Hongkong a better place to live in.'' Since its inception in 1974, over 600,000 young people have joined the JPC scheme and benefitted from it.
Besides being a channel for promoting co-operation between the police and the younger generation to fight crime, the scheme also organises a wide range of recreational activities to encourage young people to serve the community.
Youths, aged between nine and 17, are welcome to join the JPC scheme. Those interested can either contact their local Police Community Relations Offices or call the Police Public Relations Branch JPC selection at 866-6155 for details.
Meanwhile, Shamshuipo JPC grabbed the team championship of the table tennis tournament in the JPC Mini-Olympics 1992.
Coming up on February 7 and 14 will be the grand final of the athletic championships.
