Two former police commissioners are designing the training syllabus for the Hong Kong Army Cadets Association (HKACA), which was inaugurated in January, Ming Pao Daily reported Tuesday.
One of them is Lee Ming-kwai, who served as police chief from December 2003 to January 2007, and the other is his successor Tang King-shing, who led the force until January 2011, HKACA chairman Bunny Chan Chung-bun said.
The cadets will be trained in Chinese-style marching, social service and life saving among other things, he said.
Chan said the association will launch a promotional campaign next month.
He said several secondary schools have expressed their willingness to have a branch of the cadet group on campus.
Chan said, the HKACA will initially develop a team of trainers before recruiting more members.
The group has dozens of cadets who are college students who participated in summer military youth camps earlier, he said. They will be trained as instructors.
The cadet group aims to develop self-discipline, a sense of responsibility and correct values among young people.
