The Government announced that the Secretary for Home & Youth Affairs has appointed 1,937, 536 and 526 people respectively as members of the Area Committees, the District Fight Crime Committees and the District Fire Safety Committees for a two-year term starting today.


The Government identifies suitable people who aspire to serve the community via various channels to join the three committees on the basis of the merit of the individuals, taking into account various factors, including a candidate's ability, expertise, experience, integrity, commitment to serving the community as well as with due regard to the functions of the three committees.
