Reappointment of Chairman to Independent Police Complaints Council
     The Government today (May 31) announced the reappointment of Ms Priscilla Wong Pui-sze as the Chairman of the Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC) for a term of two years with effect from June 1, 2023.
     The appointment is made by the Chief Executive according to section 5 of the Independent Police Complaints Council Ordinance (Cap. 604) (IPCC Ordinance).
     The Secretary for Security, Mr Tang Ping-keung, said, "I am most grateful for the invaluable contributions of the IPCC in safeguarding a fair, effective and transparent two-tier police complaints system in Hong Kong. I believe that under the leadership of Ms Wong, the IPCC will continue to fully discharge its statutory functions under the IPCC Ordinance to ensure that complaints from the public are handled fairly and impartially. It will also leverage the experiences from the complaints to make improvement recommendations to the Police with a view to enhancing service quality and professional standard."
     Mr Tang said that the Government will continue to render full support to the IPCC to give full play to its independent statutory monitoring functions to uphold a fair and impartial police complaints system accountable to the public in Hong Kong.
     The IPCC, established under the IPCC Ordinance, is an independent statutory body responsible for monitoring and reviewing the investigation of complaints against members of the Police Force. The IPCC Ordinance provides a statutory basis for the IPCC's role and power as well as the two-tier police complaints system. It also imposes a statutory duty on the Police to comply with the IPCC's requirements. The IPCC comprises a Chairman, three Vice-chairmen and 15 non-official members.
