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

Seen it in HK films all the time lolz. I like the uniforms though, although you can hardly tell that in these pics. I like how they change it to black for winter and green for summers.

That was before. It was green for the summers and navy blue for the winters. Today, they wear a light blue uniform all year long just like the photo above.

Oh man! I don't like their new style. Light blue looks like a security guard and whats with the light jacket..sigh. Mainland Chinese police uniform actually looks much better than HK's now.

I don't like their new uniforms either. But I think the reason why they decided to change uniforms because they want something that will adapt to any season so they choose light blue as their color. Ok the light blue uniform itself is lame but they look better with the jackets.

On the other hand, the former uniforms look better but it's still has that British influence on it. Especially during the summers when HK cops prefer green while cops in other countries prefer blue or white.

Dressing is not really a priority of a police force but it symbolizes law and authority and also respect.



BTW, If you look at pic above, they seemed pretty innocent, approachable, less aggressive and friendly. Compare them to this



Which one would you NOT want to mess with?

I see the point the HK police do not look to menacing.. Compared to US(where i live) and India (where I grew up) up defenately do not want to mess with them. HK guys do look like they will be very helpfull and (according to Supercop I II III IV V atleast) They al know karate/kungfu.. haha Just kidding. I guess you cannot judge a person by their looks

To be honest, American cops are scary especially the LAPD! NYPD, SFPD, and Chicago police department are some exceptions. It's because the crime rate in the United States is higher and more serious compared to HK. Also, HK's residents are not allowed to own or carry firearms thus they are unarmed. The revolver is the standard issue handgun for a HK police officer compared to Berreta or Gloc-9 for US. Hong Kong is one of the safest cities in the world and it's residents aren't as violent of aggressive compared to the United States so HK cops aren't that aggressive.

HK police officers are trained in self defense but the most common is Wing Tsun, a form of Kung Fu. But those in the special units are more trained in martial arts and self defense compared with local officers.

I like that female police officer.

Hong Kong should really reduce the AC, I always get a cold when I come from outside all sweaty, and inside my sweat starts to get really cold and I get sick, lol.
