Hong Kong Police, keep it up!

The Commissioner of Police announced the crime statistics for 2012 earlier today.

The law and order situation in Hong Kong remained good last year, with eight statistical figures dropping to 10-year lows. These include the overall and violent crime rates; the numbers of robbery, burglary and serious assault cases recorded; and the numbers of juvenile and young persons and illegal immigrants arrested for crime.

Hong Kong is an open and free city with easy access to and from the Mainland of China and the rest of the world. Moreover, the densely populated and built-up environment makes it all the more difficult to maintain law and order here. Our police must be applauded for their success in keeping Hong Kong safe and orderly all the time.

In addition to strict discipline, rigorous training and modern accoutrements, our police officers also need the support and encouragement of the public to perform their duties effectively. While constructive criticism can help them improve their performance, public recognition offers even greater incentive for them to pursue excellence.

Hong Kong Police, keep it up!
