Last Saturday, there was a confrontation between the National Parks and organiser of the CPF protest event, Han Hui Hui on the usage of the speakers corner.
An officer from National Parks approached Ms Han without any pass and identified himself as a director from National Parks only with a name card, while police officers in plain clothes had one representative to identify himself with a generic ID pass from the police.

2 officers from National Parks and 2 officers from the police turned up just before the event started. The officers donned on their respective vests to identify which department are they are from, and identified themselves with official passes to the organisers and speakers.
Here is the video at the candle light vigil.
