The Immigration Department fully supported National Security Education Day with an open day at the Immigration Service Institute of Training & Development today.
A series of interactive activities, including exhibitions, videos, game booths, expert talks and professional demonstrations were held to introduce the public to the department’s mission and work in safeguarding national and Hong Kong security.
A Chinese-style foot drill performance was also held during the event.
Flag bearers holding the national flag marched neatly and solemnly, while the Departmental Contingent gave a Chinese-style ceremonial rifle foot drill performance with music played by the Immigration Band.
Contingent members also interacted with the public by letting them try out the command words and Chinese-style foot drill postures.
Additionally, game booths on national security were set up to enhance the public’s understanding of the importance of national security to the country, to Hong Kong and to every citizen.
Various booths were also set up to introduce the department’s work in safeguarding national security, including the display of a video spectral comparator used for detecting forged and unlawfully altered documents.
Through introduction and demonstration, department staff showed the public how they strive to guard the southern gateway to the country by intercepting lawbreakers who attempt to evade immigration clearance with false identities through their professional detection of doubtful documents.
Visitors also had the opportunity to view the tactical outfits of staff and understand the Counter-Terrorism Division’s work.
