The Police in Hong Kong: A Contemporary View
The Police in Hong Kong is the first comprehensive study of the Hong Kong Police Force, one of the largest police organizations in the world. Through detailed examinations of police practices and their value orientations, Professor Jiao aims to develop knowledge about policing in Hong Kong and related social, political, and cultural conditions in which the police operate. This work includes descriptions and analyses of: -the historical background of the Hong Kong Police -management of the 1997 handover of power from Britain to China -organizational structure and operation of the police force -changes and reforms of the police over the years -impact of the Bill of Rights -street police vs. management police behaviors -crime, organized crime, and vice problems -control of corruption and misconduct With an emphasis on empirical evidence, Professor Jiao relies heavily on his interviews with over 200 officers and on-site observations of a variety of police activities for the form and content of this study. As such, this work fills a void in criminal justice and police studies as well as Asian studies.
