Hong Kong Disciplined Services

Hong Kong Disciplined Services

The Hong Kong Disciplined Services are made up of six official uniformed forces subjected to disciplined regulations under the law. The Independent Commission Against Corruption is considered as the "de facto" 7th forces.

Six of the forces report to Security Bureau:
*Hong Kong Police Force
** Hong Kong Auxiliary Police Force
*Hong Kong Fire Services Department
*Correctional Services Department
*Customs and Excise Department
*Immigration Department
*Government Flying Service

The seventh force, ICAC reports directly to the Chief Executive of Hong Kong. They are not typically uniformed and much of their work is classified.

Two support forces also report to the Security Bureau but have no law enforcement power and are mainly staffed by volunteers trained in responding to emergency and operations.

*Civil Aid Service
*Auxiliary Medical Services
