     The Secretary for Security, Mr Lai Tung-kwok, accompanied by the Commissioner of Police, Mr Tsang Wai-hung, took part in the Junior Police Call (JPC) Fight Crime Summer Fun Day at Police Sports and Recreation Club today (August 26).

     They officiated at a ceremony to call on youngsters to help Police combat crime and promote anti-drug messages.

     Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Lai pointed out that the overall crime rate involving young people showed a decrease of 20 per cent in the first six months this year when compared with the same period of last year. However the number of young people arrested for serious drug offences increased to 141, a rise of 17 persons compared with the same period of last year. As regard to the growing trend of hidden drug abuse, the awareness of the problem among parents and in community would be strengthened so that they could play a more active role in drug prevention, early identification and intervention.

     Mr Lai commended JPC for enhancing communication between young people and the Police, and fostering close partnership in fighting crime. It also helped nurture future leaders for the community. He hoped that participants could spread anti-crime and anti-drug messages to their family members, classmates and friends.

     The officiating guests also toured around watching JPC members participating in various activities including painting, handicraft and mechanic model making.

     Organised by the Police, the fun day aimed to enhance JPC members' awareness of crimes and drug abuse as well as to promote positive values through various activities. Some 1 000 JPC members took part in today's fun day.
