A top priority of the Security Bureau and the disciplined services is to keep Hong Kong a safe and secure city. Thanks to their efforts, Hong Kong is one of the world's safest cities. The overall crime rate in 2016 dropped by 8.7% compared with 2015, its lowest level since 1978. The number of violent crimes registered a decrease of 7.2%, the lowest level since 1971.

As Hong Kong develops, it has also become increasingly polarized. Looking ahead, the Security Bureau will continue to face new challenges on fundamental rights and freedoms which include the protection of free movement of people and goods at the boundary, fighting the technology crimes, and counter-terrorism deployment.

How will Secretary for Security the Hon John K C Lee overcome the many challenges facing Hong Kong? How will he strike the right balance when mapping out security policies?

The Secretary for Security will meet with members at our special "Town Hall Forum Series" on 19 January 2018 to discuss these and other issues. Sign up today for this exclusive, closed-door forum and share your thoughts with Hong Kong's head of security.

Speaker(s) The Hon John Lee Ka-chiu, Secretary for Security

Mr Lee joined the Hong Kong Police Force in 1977 as a probationary inspector and was promoted to the post of Deputy Commissioner in 2010.

During his 33 years of service in the Police, Mr Lee had held a variety of posts responsible for operational duties, CID, Complaints Against Police, Service Quality, Personnel, Training, Information Systems, Finance, Policies Formulation, Planning and Development. He had been the Commander of Kowloon West Region, Assistant Commissioner (Crime) and Director of Crime and Security. Mr Lee had rich experience in criminal investigation, crisis management and security matters. Before he left the Police, he held the office of Deputy Commissioner (Management), responsible for the development and running of management systems of the whole Police Force.

He took up the office of Under Secretary for Security on 1 October 2012 and assisted the Secretary for Security in formulation of policies, management of resources, and engagement with the media, the legislature and different sectors of the community in respect of security matters. He became Secretary for Security on 1 July 2017.

Mr Lee holds a Master Degree in Public Policy and Administration. He was awarded the Hong Kong Police Service Medal for Distinguished Service and Silver Bauhinia Star in recognition of his exemplary contribution.
