IPA UK member enjoys Hong Kong friendship

With the help of a simple travel form

Dated 13-06-2017

A couple of months ago I decided I would go and see a mate of mine who was living and working in Hong Kong.
Despite having been an IPA member for quite a few years, I had never sent a travel form or asked for assistance. On this occasion I decided that, because my friend was working for a few days when I was out there and I’d have a bit more time on my own, I would see if any like-minded locals wanted to meet up and sent the form.
The response from Hong Kong section was fantastic!
I was met at the airport by a couple of IPA members, who made sure that I got to my friend’s apartment in my jet-lagged state. A few days later, I was honoured to accept their offer of a dim sum lunch at the Hong Kong Police Recreation Club; the sort of facility that British policing could only dream about.
Following this, I was taken to the Hong Kong Police HQ and made a visit to their Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau. As a Cybercrime trainer, it was great to learn that the issues around investigating cybercrime and training non-specialist officers are common across the globe.
We agreed to stay in touch and maybe even do some work together in the future!
All this from just sending off a simple form.

Generally Hong Kong is an exciting and fascinating place and I had a fantastic week out there and would recommend it, and the hand of friendship offered by the IPA, to everyone.
