Salute to policemen of Hongkong !

An elder suddenly fell down in the bustling street ...

That was happiness then.

What happened to that old man actually? Was he bashed up by someone? Or just injured his head by falling onto the ground due to imbalance?

HAH! I witnessed a similar incident not too long ago at a HK plaza. There was a woman that fell on the escalator and broke her leg. There were 2 up escalators though (always seems to have some redundancy in HK!) so no effect on the traffic flow.

Asia's finest, The Hong Kong Police Force



HK's police force is argubly the best in Asia and one of the best in the world. Founded in 1844, it is one of the oldest but also one of the most modern in this region.

The force


This is the current uniform of the HK Police Force. Unlike the summer green and winter navy blue uniforms, this is worn throughout the year.


Another view but this time, uniforms of women officers are also shown.


Motorcycle police wear a bright yellow jacket instead of navy blue.

The fleet

While police forces in other countries use patrol cars, HK Police use patrol vans. The standard patrol van is a Mercedes Sprinter or Ford Transit.

Mercedes Sprinter


Ford Transit

Other vehicles


Isuzu Trooper


Trooper Benz 814D


Honda CBX 750P


Toyota Coaster


Mazda Capella


Mobile Command Unit
