Engaging the Ethnic Minority (EM) community is an operational priority of the Force. Yuen Long Police District strives for the integration of ethnic minority into the community. Due to different culture and limited Chinese proficiency, ethnic minority youngsters encounter difficulties in integrating into the local community. They lack of self-esteem, positive living values and crime prevention awareness. On the other hand, there is an increasing number of ethnic minority in the community; therefore, employing more ethnic minority police officers would further strengthen the Force policing on them. In this regard, Yuen Long Police District had launched ‘Project HIMALAYA’ since 2013 in order to enhance ethnic minority integration into the community and ethnic minority youngsters’ interest to join HKP.
This project targets on local ethnic minority youngsters and tailor-made a series of activities aiming at
- ● elevating their Chinese competency;
- ● arousing their interest to join HKP; and
Chinese Tutorial Class
