It surveys the history and development of the field of police studies in Hong Kong, and examines the various methods, problems and prospects in the field. It proceeds by presenting the adverse effects of a-theoretical research and practice in policing, and compares the state of play of policing research in Hong Kong to Western contexts. The book advances the emerging field of research by proposing a focus on inside-out and bottom-up research, particularly involving the voices of frontline police officers in Hong Kong. It also assesses the impact of the states change of sovereignty and the apparent radicalisation of policing. Given both its depth and breadth of focus, Policing in Hong Kong will be of great interest to both scholars and students, as well as police practitioners, interested in the development and future advancement of policing studies.
