     The Chief Secretary for Administration, Mrs Carrie Lam, visited Lai King Correctional Institution and Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre of the Correctional Services Department this afternoon (March 3) to learn more about correctional officers’ work in providing safe custody and rehabilitation.

     Mrs Lam, accompanied by the Commissioner of Correctional Services, Mr Yau Chi-chiu, first visited Lai King Correctional Institution and was briefed by Mr Yau about the department’s work. At the training restaurant, she was served with a lunch prepared by persons in custody who took the food and beverage service training programme. She also toured classrooms and retail and office operation training room to understand more about education and vocational training provided by the department. She was pleased to see the rehabilitation of persons in custody and encouraged them to continue to equip themselves for reintegration into society and make good use of their strengths.

     Lai King Correctional Institution is a minimum security multi-function institution for young female persons in custody aged from 14 to under 21. It provides by law a half-day education programme and half-day vocational training to help prepare persons in custody to reintegrate into society.

     Later, Mrs Lam visited Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre, where she viewed the use of a low-radiation X-ray body scanner to detect and prevent the smuggling into institutions of dangerous drugs concealed inside human body. She also visited the day room and dormitories of persons in custody to learn more about their daily activities and meal arrangements.

     Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre is a maximum security institution for male adult remands and convicted persons in custody over the age of 21.

     During the visit, Mrs Lam acknowledged the department’s unique and specific role of providing a safe and secure custodial environment and suitable rehabilitation programmes to minimise the risk of re-offending as well as promoting community education work. She encouraged correctional officers to keep up their enthusiasm and professionalism and continue to dedicate themselves to serving the public and society.
