The Hong Kong Police Force not only encourages the children of those on the force to study hard, but also urges offi cers to make the most of their spare time by undertaking fur ther studies to equip them selves for new challenges, Com missioner of Police Eddie Hui Ki-on said. At a scholarship presenta tion ceremony for the Police Children's Education Trust (PCET), the Police Education and Welfare Trust (PE&WT) and the Police Welfare Fund (PWF), the commissioner presented scholarships to nine police officers' children who had achieved outstanding academic results in open examinations. He also gave grants to 14 Junior Police Officers (JPOs) who had completed job-related diploma courses. Under the PCET and the PE&WT scholarship scheme, three children of police officers were each awarded $50,000 for obtaining four distinctions in their A-levels or equivalent, while the remaining six each re ceived $20,000 for obtaining seven or more distinctions in the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination or equivalent qualification last year. The 14 JPOs each received $5,000 from a new grant intend ed to encourage police officers to pursue private studies. The commissioner also pre sented souvenirs to representa tives from four force units and an interest group which had made the highest collections in a fund-raising campaign launched last October to raise money for the two trusts.
