5th Anniversary of ICTU’s establishment – “Safe Community Fun Day”
Inter-departmental Counter Terrorism Unit (ICTU) successfully held the “Safe Community Fun Day” at the Hong Kong Science Park on April 29. It is a key event to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the establishment of ICTU, the Permanent Secretary for Security, Mr Patrick Li, representing the Security Bureau, together with directorate representatives from the six disciplined services, officiated at the opening ceremony and interacted with members of the public as well as young people to promote safe community messages.
The event attracted over 2,500 citizens with active participation of various uniformed youth groups. The Fun Day featured a number of innovative and interesting booths and various interactive technology experiences, including virtual reality/augmented reality games, flight simulation, e-Dodgeball, and Bishi Bashi game, to enhance public awareness on safe community. During the event, ICTU also conducted an emergency preparedness drill in which students were invited to participate and demonstrate how to apply the advisories of “Run, Hide, Report” and “Three basic skills on emergency preparedness” in the face of terrorist attacks or violent incidents.
The “5th Anniversary Colouring/Graphic Design Competition” organised by ICTU earlier also received an overwhelming response with over 1,000 entries. Winners were invited to attend the Fun Day and prize presentation ceremony, receiving awards from the Permanent Secretary for Security, Mr Patrick Li and the Commissioner of Police, Mr Siu Chak-yee. Winning designs will have an opportunity to be displayed as advertising panels across the territory.
ICTU would continue to engage and unite with the community in fighting terrorism together, with a view to making Hong Kong a “Safe Community” to live and work.
