CE visits training school open days

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today participated in the open day activities at disciplinary forces training schools organised in support of National Security Education Day.   The nation designated April 15 each year as National Security Education Day in 2015. This year marks the sixth National Security Education Day and the first held in Hong Kong after the implementation of the National Security Law.    The Committee for Safeguarding National Security of the Hong Kong SAR has organised a series of promotion and education activities to enhance people's awareness of national security.   The five training schools, the Correctional Services Department Staff Training Institute, Hong Kong Customs College (HKCC), Fire & Ambulance Services Academy, Hong Kong Police College and Immigration Service Institute of Training & Development (ISITD) opened their doors to the public today to enhance understanding of the disciplinary forces' facilities and training as well as their work in safeguarding national security.   Mrs Lam visited the HKCC and the ISITD to watch foot drill performances by the two disciplinary forces, tour exhibitions showcasing the disciplinary forces' work and effectiveness in relation to safeguarding national security, and to watch demonstrations by customs detector dogs.   She praised the performance of the two disciplinary forces and encouraged them to dutifully continue their efforts in counter-terrorism and anti-smuggling work, in combating illegal immigration and forged documents as well as other areas to contribute to safeguarding national security.   The Chief Executive spoke to and took pictures with visitors and was pleased to note they found the activities and performances interesting. She considered that the activities would help enhance the public’s understanding of national security.   Mrs Lam noted that national security is the cornerstone of national stability and the bedrock of people's well-being, adding that every citizen is duty-bound to understand and safeguard national security.   She hoped that through a range of public engagement and promotion events organised by the committee and various departments, members of the public would deepen their understanding of the Hong Kong SAR's work in safeguarding national security in different aspects, thereby enhancing their awareness of national security and the obligation to abide by the law to share the obligation to safeguard national sovereignty, unification and territorial integrity.   Additionally, the Chief Executive attended the National Security Education Day 2021 Opening Ceremony this morning, during which she delivered a speech and launched a series of diverse events held in the community, in schools and online.
