Zero tolerance to illicit photo-taking at swimming pool changing rooms

In response to a newspaper report today (June 10) concerning suspected illicit photo-taking activities at the changing rooms of swimming pools managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), the department issued the following statement:

The LCSD adopts a zero tolerance approach towards these photo-taking activities in the changing rooms of swimming pools and beaches. Once discovered, these cases will be dealt with seriously and referred to the Police for follow-up action.

Notices have been put up in the changing rooms and toilets of all leisure and recreational venues to remind users not to take photos in the areas.

Such photo-taking activities in these areas are illicit. Upon receiving complaints or spotting such acts, the venue staff will refer the matters to the Police for follow-up action.

For the enquiry from the newspaper received a few days ago, the suspected cases so mentioned have been referred to the Police.

Meanwhile, the LCSD will inspect all shower curtains inside the changing rooms of the swimming pools and beaches and where necessary, adjust their lengths. Patrol will also be stepped up at the changing rooms to curb these illicit activities.

An LCSD spokesman urged all users of swimming pools and beaches who spot suspicious activities to report to the venue management staff, who will then take immediate follow-up actions.
