Welcome to the website of the Security Bureau of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government.
Hong Kong is one of the safest regions in the world, with a low crime rate and good social order. In terms of security, we are the envy of most municipal governments. While we pride ourselves in being a free, open and secure society, the support of the community is one of the most important elements of our being able to maintain our advantage.
The Security Bureau is responsible for a wide-ranging policy portfolio, from the maintenance of law and order, exercising effective and efficient immigration and customs control, rehabilitating offenders and drug abusers, and providing swift and reliable emergency fire and rescue services. These services are essential in a modern society, and amongst the core of Hong Kong's positioning as "Asia's World City".
Our security policies are implemented through our disciplined forces. They include the Hong Kong Police Force, the Fire Services Department, the Correctional Services Department, the Immigration Department, the Customs and Excise Department and the Government Flying Service. I hope you would find the information in this website interesting and useful, and I welcome your suggestions on how our services could be improved. With your support, we are confident that Hong Kong could continue to be a safe and desirable home for our residents.
