     The Chairman of Police Sub-Committee of Standing Committee on Disciplined Services Salaries and Conditions of Service, Mr Francis Ho, inspected the passing-out parade for 30 probationary inspectors and 240 recruit constables at the Hong Kong Police College today (December 5).
     Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Ho noted that the graduates would face a lot of stress and new challenges in future, in different posts, sometimes there would even be temptation and provocation, I suggest reverting to the basics and sticking to the traditional virtues to which we have been so accustomed that we tend to forget easily.
     He advised the graduates to hold on to the strength of character. I believe that you will exercise restraint and abide by the law, uphold the rule of law, and be determined to exercise your powers and enforce the law in a fair, just and impartial manner, fighting crimes for the benefit of prosperity.
     Mr Ho said that the rapid pace of globalisation, technological advancement, social development, and continued evolution of social values and expectation on public services that had made our society more complicated and volatile.
     He told the graduates to remain diligent, as their devotion and commitment to work and the drive that came along would add fun and satisfaction to their work. He said, A colleague who is hardworking, willing to take on responsibilities and capable will definitely garner respect from his fellow colleagues, earn the recognition and appreciation from his superiors, and find joy in his work.
     He also encouraged the graduates to learn continuously and strive for excellence. The Hong Kong Police Force is exemplary in terms of providing continuous training to its staff and enhancing their professionalism and academic qualities. I hope you can make good use of the internal resources as well as those available elsewhere for continuous self-enhancement to cope with the rapidly changing society and working environment, he said, adding that officers were encouraged to acquire knowledge on subjects outside of their policing profession to expand their horizon.
