Hong Kong's Water Police

Tolo Harbour can be found Hong Kong’s New Territories – a quiet and relaxing location after the hustle and bustle of the city.  Small villages dot its coastline and boat people live on their junks.  

With all this water it is not surprising to find that the Hong Kong Police had a water division from the very earliest of days.  For its history I would recommend Iain Ward’s book:  “Sui Geng – The HK Marine Police 1841 – 1950”. 

For the story of one of it’s members - Sergeant George BOOLE, who served from 1900 to 1911 - please click on the link below where you will be taken to my Hong Kong Police Ancestors Blog:
