While there are other plans in the works to rally and update volunteers, such as an e-newsletter and a website, the network’s first series of dialogues had already gotten good reviews from Home Team volunteers.
Staff Sergeant Tommy Chu, CDAU emergency service volunteer, said: “This is a very clear effort that the ministry as a parent organization is doing something to engage the volunteers.”
He added that the dialogue provided networking opportunities as it enabled volunteers to interact and share their viewpoints.
However, Mr Chu hopes some of the issues raised will be followed up on as more volunteers will then be encouraged to discuss their views.
For Crime Prevention Ambassador Mr Lionel De Souza, he felt the dialogue was a good platform for him to share experiences and exchange ideas.
He added that networking would bring volunteers of different groups together and help them understand what is happening on the ground and in other divisions.
“When volunteers from many walks of life come together, they can fit the whole jigsaw puzzle,” he said.
