The Macau Security Force (Portuguese: Forças de Segurança de Macau; simplified Chinese: 澳门保安部队; traditional Chinese: 澳門保安部隊; pinyin: Àomén Bǎoān Bùduì) is Macau's public security body under the Secretariat for Security, responsible for handling government activities ranging from law enforcement to public safety.

History[edit]

On December 20, 1999, the various police force branches of Macau (Security Forces of Macau and Judiciary Police), under the jurisdiction of Security and Justice departments (except the customs police, who were reassigned to the Financial Service Department) were assigned to the Forças de Segurança de Macau (FSM, Macau Security Force), under the supervision of the secretary of security (security department). At the time of the handover of Macau to the People's Republic of China, plans were in place to modernize the police force with the goal of better positioning the force to combat organized crime and to stop illegal immigration.
