The Hong Kong Police is the police force of Hong Kong. Formed in 1844 with a strength of 35, the force evolved from an extremely broad-based role (with responsibilities that included fire-fighting, prisons, customs and immigration), to that of a traditional police service, with mostly civic responsibilities - although the force is still heavily committed to countering illegal immigration and smuggling. As of 28 February 2007, the Force has a strength of 27,375 and 4,885 civilian employees. The force was granted Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth II in 1969 and renamed Royal Hong Kong Police Force until the handover in 1997.[1] The police in Hong Kong operate under local legislations and Hong Kong Basic Law and within the traditional constabulary concept of preserving life and property, preventing and detecting crime and keeping the peace. For times of emergency the force has a paramilitary capability. The Commissioner of Police reports to the Secretary for Security, who is responsible for all disciplined services in Hong Kong. Independent surveys report that 85% of citizens have confidence in the Hong Kong Police.[2] With over 30,000 officers, the Hong Kong Police Force is one of the largest police forces in the world. Its marine fleet has 166 patrol launches and other craft is the largest of any civil police force. [3]

At the time of its establishment the police force consisted of 32 men.[4] It was a multi-racial force, including white officers, and constables of Indian (mostly Sikhs from Punjab), Chinese and other origins. Policemen from different ethnic groups were assigned a different alphabetical letter before their batch numbers: "A" for Europeans, "B" for Indians, "C" for local Chinese who spoke Cantonese, and "D" for Chinese recruited from Shandong Province. "E" was later assigned to White Russians who arrived from Siberia after the Russian Civil War. The headdress also varied according to ethnicity: the whites wore kepis), the Sikh Indians had uniform turbans, and the Chinese wore a form of straw hat. All of them, however, shared the same green tunics in winter - giving rise to the nicknames, ’luk yee’ (green coat) and later ’wu kwai’ - (tortoise). For several decades Hong Kong was a ’rough-and-tumble’ port with a ’wild west’ attitude to law and order. Consequently many members of the force were equally rough individuals. As HK began to flourish and make its place in the world Britain began to take a dim view of the government’s lack of grip in both public and private sectors, and officials with strong values and Victorian concepts of management and discipline were sent to

History
On 30 April 1841, 12 weeks after the British had landed in Hong Kong, orders were given by Captain Charles Elliot to establish a police force in the new colony. The first chief of police was Captain William Caine, who also

raise standards. Strong leadership, both of HK and of the force began to pay dividends towards the latter part of the 19th century, and business prospered accordingly. Piracy on the seas, a centuries old way of life for many dwellers on the coast of south China proved a thorn in the side of the Water Police from day one up until the early 1960s. The 1890s brought challenges both operational and organisational - outbreaks of bubonic plague. 1893-94 and the annexation of the New Territories 1898-99 created difficult but surmountable problems. Hong Kong slid easily into the 20th century, at least in its first decade. The fall of the Qing dynasty in 1911 brought civil unrest and the start of WWI in 1914 saw many European officers enlist and return to UK. In the 1920s and 1930s Hong Kong’s general peace was punctuated by bouts of civil unrest sparked by labour disputes, instability in China and Japanese militarism. When war came again in 1941 an unknown number of police officers and reserves - Chinese, Indian, European and Eurasian had their lives taken by the Japanese during both the main conflict and the occupation.

time internment he worked secretly to draft a conceptual plan for the reorganisation of the force. Although he was not to head the force after the war, his plans were broadly supported by Governor Sir Mark Young and implemented under the formidable Commissioner Duncan MacIntosh thereby generating the foundations of today’s structure and philosophy. The proposals included equality in recruitment and promotion for local officers and the cessation of recruitment of European constables. Moreover, doubts about the willingness of HK people to accept Indian officers who had worked, and often abused their authority, under the Japanese administration (December 1941 until August 1945) forced authorities to wind down the Sikh contingent. Instead, Pakistani and Shandong Chinese were recruited as constables and this went on until the early 1960s. The last European inspectorate officers joined in 1994. The first female inspector joined in 1949, followed by the first intake of WPCs in 1951 - currently about 14% of the force is female, holding all ranks between constable and assistant commissioner. The 1950s saw the commencement of HK’s 40-yr rise to global eminence. Throughout this period the HKP has successfully tackled many issues that have challenged HK’s stability. Between 1949-89 HK has experienced several waves of immigration from mainland China, notably 1958-62. The force also took over responsibility for manning the border from British forces in 1990-91. In the 1970s/80s large numbers of Vietnamese ’boat people’ arrived in HK posing challenges first for marine police, secondly for officers who manned the dozens of camps in the territory and lastly for those who had to repatriate them. Most serious though were the riots. In 1956 supporters of the China Nationalist movement defied government regulations to provide the pretext for the eruption of conflict with pro-Communist activists and sympathisers - serious disorder was suppressed by the force and British military. In 1966 Communist-inspired riots broke out over a price rise on the Star Ferry; and following this instance in spring 1967, at the time of the Cultural Revolution in China, left-wing workers instigated long and bloody riots. The HK Police lost ten men during the turmoil which saw a 10-month campaign of bombing and murder. For its determined and

Police in 1906 include Indians and Chinese. Post-war, the mechanism of government in Hong Kong was a shambles and the police force was certainly in a bad way - no men, no equipment, devastated buildings and important resources like intelligence files, fingerprints, criminal records and personnel documents all lost/destroyed and the Water Police had 4 barely serviceable launches. Nevertheless, the situation presented an opportunity to ’start from scratch’ and after the ’British Military Administration’, during which Colonel C.H. Sansom headed the force, Hong Kong was in a position to stand on its own feet again in May 1946. When Japan invaded, the commissioner was John Pennefather-Evans, through war-

Fire, Transport et al. all had their own distinct methods of earning illicit income. The police were the offenders with the highest profile and it took the determined stance of Governor MacLehose together with Commissioner Sutcliffe to instigate the firmest of measures to eradicate syndicated corruption - and the establishment of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) in 1974 was the prime one. After teething troubles, including a mass walkout by officers in 1977, by the early 1980s a combination of the ICAC, firm police management, better emoluments and an amnesty had succeeded in destroying the overall culture, removing powerful figures, educating against greed and increasing accountability. It would be foolish to deny that there is no corruption in any police force, but Hong Kong set an example to the world and for over 20 years the police in HK have been as clean as any force in the world - if not cleaner. Whilst 99% of the 28,000 police force is HK Chinese, the overall establishment does reflect the cosmopolitan nature of HK. As of 2006, there are approximately 280 Europeans in the force from inspector to senior assistant commissioner and a handful of officers with Indian, Pakistani, Thai, Singaporean and Malaysian heritage. New recruits have to satisfy basic academic and language requirements (be able to read and write Chinese and speak fluent Cantonese) as well as be a permanent resident of the HK SAR. Up until December 2004, when a yearround blue uniform was adopted the HK Police had two seasonal uniforms - a green/ khaki (buff for women officers) summer uniform and a dark blue tunic for winter, with constables and sergeants wearing blue shirts and more senior staff wearing white ones. Over the years, the proportion of Chinese staff within the HK Police, and the numbers of senior staff has increased, for many decades the senior leadership remained exclusively European, though this began to change in the 1970s, and from the first appointment in 1989, the Commissioner of Police (and his deputies) has been a local Chinese. Responsibility for the prisons passed out of the control of the police in 1879, a separate fire brigade was formed in 1945, and the HKP assumed responsibility for immigration and customs and excise duties until 1961 - although the boundary with mainland China is still manned by police and a very high

The uniform, except for the Bermuda shorts, was used until 2004. successful efforts in suppressing this lengthy insurrection the HKP were granted the "Royal" prefix in 1969.[1] This made the Royal Hong Kong Police one of only five forces in the Commonwealth of Nations to receive this honour (the four others being the Royal Irish Constabulary (1867-1922), Royal Ulster Constabulary (1922-2001), Royal Canadian Mounted Police (1920-present and as RNWMP 1904-1920) and Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (1979-present)) and HRH Princess Alexandra was appointed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to become the Commandant General of the Royal Hong Kong Police. The prefix was dropped at midnight on 1 July 1997 when China resumed sovereignty over Hong Kong, and the force reverted to the title ’Hong Kong Police’. Despite steadfast service and efficiency levels which have grown steadily over 160 years life has not always been rosey. No administration anywhere in the world has ever been free of corruption in varying forms and severity. The spectre of corruption became prominent in HK in the 1960s, the HKP - as did almost every government department experienced this and it peaked between 1962-74, involving officers of all ranks and ethnicities. Reasons? Motives and opportunities were many and varied, but mainly ’motives’ (poor pay and worries about Red China invading and abolishing pensions), and ’opportunities’ (HK was enjoying vibrant economic progress and its industrious, selfstarter people were forming thousands of small street-level businesses all ripe for ’protection’). During this time, the police, along with members of departments like Public Works,

23 districts. The policing of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the main towns of the New Territories follow a similar pattern. Responsibility for law and order on the MTR underground railway, KCR and LRT which runs through several police districts, is vested in the Railway District. The Marine Region, with a fleet of over 145 launches and craft, patrols some 1,850 km² of waters within Hong Kong including the busy harbour and 244 outlying islands. Shore patrols are regularly mounted to maintain contact with inhabitants of small islands and isolated communities. In addition to normal policing functions, the Marine Police fleet is also responsible for maintaining effective law and order within Hong Kong waters with particular emphasis on countering illegal immigration and smuggling at sea. The Marine Region is also the main agency in the Hong Kong search and rescue organisation for maritime operations within Hong Kong waters.

The Police Tactical Unit (PTU) is an establishment of six companies comprising 1020 officers each. Their base and training camp is located in Fanling. In each company (under the command of a Superintendent), there are 4 platoons. Led by an Inspector or senior inspector, a platoon comprises 32 officers with 1 station sergeant (senior NCO) and 8 sergeants. The PTU provides an immediate manpower reserve for use in any emergency. PTU companies are attached to all land regions and are available for internal security, crowd management, anti-crime operations and disaster response duties throughout Hong Kong. The PTU also provides up-to-date instruction and training in internal security and crowd management techniques for a wide cross-section of Force members. The Special Duties Unit (SDU) is a subbranch of PTU, nicknamed as "Flying Tigers". There are about 100 team members in the SDU including 1 senior superintendent , 6 chief inspectors, 5 inspectors, 4 station sergeants, 24 sergeants and 60 constables. The unit is split into 3 sections - Training, Administration and Action. The Action Wing is further separated into 3 teams - an Assault Team, a Scuba Team ("Water Ghost" team), and a Sniper Team. The SDU was formally establish in 1974 and originated from the former ’Sharpshooter Team’. Originally the SDU received much training from British Forces Overseas Hong Kong supplemented by visits from Special Air Service (SAS), Royal Marine or Parachute Regiment personnel. After about 15 years, the SDU took on its own training, mainly basing the tactics on British Special Forces techniques but also exchanging ideas with officers from elite units in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. The Anti-Illegal Immigration Control Centre is responsible for collecting intelligence and monitoring operations in respect of illegal immigrants from the Mainland and Vietnam. The Support Wing oversees the execution and staffing of operational support matters, including the formulation of operational policies for both the regular and auxiliary forces and for updating kit and equipment. It is also responsible for the various licensing functions of the Force. The coordination of all public relations activities is arranged through the Police Public Relations Branch.

Hong Kong Police Force
Traffic Headquarters is responsible for formulating force priorities, policies and procedures on matters related to traffic; coordinating their implementation and monitoring their effects. It processes all traffic prosecutions and collects and maintains traffic-related data. Traffic Headquarters offers advice on traffic management matters, examines local traffic patterns and new major infrastructure projects. It also formulates, supports and monitors road safety education and enforcement programmes. The Transport Division is responsible for the management and deployment of the Force fleet of approximately 2,400 vehicles, driver establishment and the acquisition of new police vehicles. It also administers all policy matters relating to police transport requirements. The Hong Kong Auxiliary Police Force was officially established in 1957 with the merger of the ’special’ and ’reserve’ formations which had been in intermittent existence since the 1880s. The part-timers were formally established in 1914 when numerous full-time officers returned to Europe to fight in WWI. Today the HKAP forms a reserve of manpower to assist in times of natural disaster or civil emergency. As of 31 December 2005, its 3,968 members are paid for their part-time support of the regular force and are involved in reinforcing daily duties and performing crowd control duties at public events and festivals. The ability to assist during times of emergency is retained.

investigation of crimes and matters of a security nature. Crime Wing consists of a number of operational bureaux and specialised units. The operational bureaux deal with specific areas of criminal activity whereas the specialised units provide support services to operational units in the force and deal with policy matters on various issues including child abuse, domestic violence and witness protection. Security Wing provides VIP protection and security co-ordination, including counterterrorism. Organised Crime and Triad Bureau (OCTB; also known as "O?") investigates major organised and serious crime involving all types of activities such as theft/smuggling of vehicles, human trafficking, firearms, vice, debt collection, syndicated gambling and extortion. It also investigates triad societies and their hierarchies with particular emphasis on their involvement in organised crime. Criminal Intelligence Bureau (CIB) is the Force’s central coordinating body for intelligence on crime and criminality which, after analysis and assessment, is disseminated to crime investigation units as required. In addition, the CIB works closely with the OCTB and other Crime Wing bureaux in tackling triad and organised crime syndicates. To strengthen the criminal intelligence capability within the Force, the Bureau also organises related training courses and seminars for investigators. Criminal Investigation Division or CID are sub-division located in each district. Commercial Crime Bureau investigates serious commercial and business fraud, computer-related crimes, the forgery of monetary instruments, identity documents and payment cards, and the counterfeiting of currency and coins. It liaises very closely with international law enforcement agencies on exchange of intelligence and in actioning requests for investigation from other jurisdictions alleging criminal conduct in relation to commercial transactions. Narcotics Bureau investigates serious drug cases such as importation and manufacture of illicit drugs, and gathers intelligence in relation to major drug activities. It also conducts investigations in partnership with overseas law enforcement agencies whenever there is a Hong Kong connection to international drug trafficking. The Bureau is also responsible for financial investigations using powers granted under the Drug Trafficking

(Recovery of Proceeds) Ordinance, Organised and Serious Crimes Ordinance and the United Nations (Anti-Terrorism Measures) Ordinance. Liaison Bureau coordinates all police-related inquiries from overseas police organisations and local consular officials. It also represents the force in Interpol (the International Criminal Police Organisation or ICPO) as a sub-bureau of the China National Central Bureau. Crime Prevention Bureau provides advisory security services to the Government, commerce and industry, and the public in general. Support Group is made up of units which provide a technical and professional service to support criminal investigation, including Criminal Records Bureau, Identification Bureau, Forensic Firearms Examination Bureau, Witness Protection Unit and Child Protection Policy Unit. The group also fulfils a liaison responsibility for the Forensic Pathology Service and the Forensic Science Division.

Personnel and Training

A Hong Kong police van Personnel Wing is responsible for all core human resource management functions, including recruitment, promotion, conditions of service, staff relations and welfare matters. In recent years, the Personnel Wing has also ursurped the near exclusive right in adjudicating disciplinary proceedings brought against Inspectors and Junior Officers. The establishment of a dedicated unit to preside over disciplinary proceedings gave senior officers in the Personnel Wing easy avenues to influence the outcome of the proceedings.

improvement. The C&II Branch which includes the Complaints Against Police Office (CAPO) oversees the investigation and successful resolution of all complaints made both externally and internally against members of the force. The work of CAPO is closely monitored by the Independent Police Complaints Council to ensure that all complaints against police officers and traffic wardens are fully and impartially investigated. The findings of CAPO are seldom challenged by the IPCC.

Management Services
Information Systems Wing has two branches and one bureau dealing with communications, information technology and business services. Communications Branch designs, acquires, examines and maintains all force communications networks and equipment including radio, video, navigational aids, speed detection radar, mobile phones, pagers, office telephones and mini firing range equipment.
