The Police Recruitment Day provides one-stop service to applicants, including initial screening and scheduling of written examination for Probationary Inspector candidates; initial screening and group interview for Recruit Police Constable candidates; and initial screening and seminar for Police Constable (Auxiliary) candidates, which helps shorten the time required for the recruitment process. Successful applicants will undergo training at the Hong Kong Police College in March the soonest.

The Force has been adopting a proactive recruitment strategy to attract high calibre candidates who possess the required competencies to serve. The Force will participate in the “Education and Careers Expo 2019” at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre between January 24 and 27, which features the display of equipment and demonstrations of more than 15 Police units, including the first-ever participation of the Briefing Support Unit with its constructed scale model. Members of the public can also play a VR shooting game and obtain limited edition souvenirs at the booth. Officers of the Recruitment Division will answer recruitment-related questions and accept applications on spot.
The Force accepts applications year-round.
