    OUHK Chan Tak Education Fund supports police officers to study 05/01/2007

    The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) today (Friday) launched an education fund dedicated to police officers, The OUHK Chan Tak Education Fundwhich was set up with a HK$3.5 million donation by a member of the OUHK Council Mr. Bunny Chan Chung-bun.

    The OUHK Chan Tak Education Fund aims to encourage police officers to study for continued professional development in policing. It will provide study awards for serving police officers on completion of any Law Enforcement and Security Management programmes at the OUHK. The Fund will also sponsor academic talks and activities to promote public awareness of the profession.

    A ceremony was held today to mark the establishment of the Fund, which was also witnessed by Mr. Gordon Fung Siu-yuen, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Management).

    The donor Mr. Bunny Chan expressed his appreciation of and support for the OUHK's missions and key values, and said the Fund was named in memory of his beloved late father Mr. Chan Tak.

    Acknowledging the donation,Chairman of the OUHK Council, Dr. The Hon. Charles Lee said, 'Mr. Chan is an enthusiastic supporter of education in Hong Kong and also an active participant in the OUHK's governance and development. Thanks to his generous support, we can create more opportunities for police officers to study for a recognized university qualification in Law Enforcement and Security Management, and in turn enhance the overall quality of the policing profession.'

    Dr. Lee also thanked the Hong Kong Police Force for their partnership with the OUHK. He noted that more than 700 Junior Police Officers had completed the Certificate in Law Enforcement and Security Management programme which was launched last year in collaboration with the Police College. Another 160 police officers are now studying at the OUHK by distance learning. He hoped to continue the joint efforts in upgrading the quality and professionalism of the police force.

    Mr. Gordon Fung Siu-yuen, Deputy Commissioner of Police Management, expressed his appreciation for the public support and understanding towards police training. He said, 'I believe the Chan Tak Education Fund will go a long way in promoting and developing police-related programmes. It also helps to boost the life-long learning culture in the Police Force.'

    The recognition by a university of the qualification of the foundation training for recruit police constables (RPC), and the opportunity to further their professional studies to higher levels; is another strong impetus, according to Mr Fung.

    In March 2007, the OUHK will offer the same Certificate in Law Enforcement and Security Management programme as taught at the Police College to serving officers who have previously completed the foundation training for RPCs. Students will obtain 30 credits and a certificate upon completion of two courses, namely 'Social Studies in Policing' and 'Psychology in Policing'. They can then further their studies by distance learning at the OUHK to obtain a diploma (60 credits), a higher diploma (90 credits), a Bachelor’s degree (120 credits) or an honours degree (160 credits) in Law Enforcement and Security Management.
