Hong Kong has positioned itself to become the world city of Asia, people
   have to work very hard and the causes of crime :

    To support the life style.
    The luxurious life of the rich may tempt these people to reach it
    through any means
    Increasing unemployment
    They may try to make money in whatever way possible .
    Through mass media violence and materialism are instilled into the
    mind of the people in HK.
    The traditional Chinese virtues are losing influence.
    The values of life are the glorification of wealth and the extolling of
    fame .
    Stuffed with the desire of get- rich-quick.
    unconcerned parents
    examination-oriented education system .

To fight crime, we need better cooperation between the police and the

   Sacky

After this project I know that HK’s case of
   crimes are increasing . I believe that
   fixed penalty notices can save the
   police’s time to patrol on the
   streets .They enable the courts to
   concentrate on more serious offences
   and give offenders an immediate
So I hope the government to pay attention
   this problem . Especially, it need to
   supervise the media strictly that it can
   avoid affecting teenager’s intelligent
   growth .
Member Opinion
   Cizuna

Before doing this project ,we find that this project might be
   quite difficult to do. we can find many information we want
   in the internet .

During the project …
   I started getting interest in English.
   I can learn much English such Vocabulary ,tenses ,idioms
   I can improve our friendship between I and my members.
   This project is very meaningful.
As Crime is a problem that very close to us. We usually see
   crime on TV, or on newspaper . We need to look into it
   and think about the solution to suggest the
   government to solve this problem at all.

Finally, thanks to my members ‘ help and
   cooperation .Without you , I think this project cannot be
   finished .

Cynthia :
After finishing this meaningful project, I have found
 that the significance of it is very impressive to me.
 Despite of the harsh and fierce difficulties that we
 faced, my team members and me overcame this
 hardship together.
Never can we draw a conclusion that the project is
 useless. In fact, however, it is very useful and
 practical for us as we learned the co-operation,
 inter-personal skills and independence so on. I
 sincerely thank all people helping me to complete
 this great work.
