The Association

Purposes of the Association

The Association was inaugurated in 1938 to:

  • perpetuate friendships formed through service or association with the Hong Kong Police/Royal Hong Kong Police
  • act in the mutual interests of its members
  • raise, maintain and administer a welfare fund for the benefit of members and their widows


Membership is open to:

  • officers, irrespective of rank, who have served in or have retired from the HKP/RHKP
  • sons and daughters over the age of 18 of officers who have served in or have retired from the HKP/RHKP
  • persons who have such association with the HKP/RHKP, or who have had such service with the Government of Hong Kong as to warrant the Committee of the Association approving their application for membership


The Association has a worldwide membership, with members in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom and many other countries.

The routine affairs of the Association are run by a Committee based in London, with a resident Committee representative in each major region.

Where several members are closely located they sometimes form a Chapter to socialise and organise local events.

In the United Kingdom, and some other areas, local area welfare officers assist with the welfare functions of the Association.
