A police force is a constituted body of persons empowered by the state to enforce the law, protect property, and limit civil disorder. Their powers include the legitimized use of force. The term is most commonly associated with police services of a state that are authorized to exercise the police power of that state within a defined legal or territorial area of responsibility. Police forces are often defined as being separate from military or other organizations involved in the defense of the state against foreign aggressors; however, gendarmerie are military units charged with civil policing.
The Hong Kong Police Force (HKPF; ), also known as the Hong Kong Police (HKP; ), is the largest disciplined service under the Security Bureau of Hong Kong. It is the world's second, and Asia's first, police agency to operate with a modern policing system. It was formed on 1 May 1844, with a strength of 32 officers. Queen Elizabeth II granted the 'Royal' prefix, through a Royal Charter, to the name of the Hong Kong Police Force in 1969 for their handling of the 1967 riots: the police force had, therefore, become the Royal Hong Kong Police Force (RHKPF; ; also known as the Royal Hong Kong Police (RHKP; )). Following the transfer of sovereignty, the Force is once again named the Hong Kong Police Force.
