Police Report is a weekend RTHK programme in Hong Kong, similar to Crimewatch in the UK or America's Most Wanted in the United States. It is broadcast in English and Cantonese versions (broadcast as Police Magazine, subtitled), and each episode differ only in broadcast language and cast. Each episode is only five minutes long, and is televised on TVB Pearl on Saturdays and ATV World on Sundays, following their evening newscasts.[1]

Hosts[edit]

Generally, the current presenter for the English version is John Cameron, Superintendent of the Hong Kong Police Force. In certain episodes, other hosts includes Senior Inspector Ricky Cheung, Superintendent Bradley Wright, Senior Inspector Adrianna Chan, and Chief Inspector Mark Anstress.

Episode Format[edit]

It reports on unresolved crimes (often involving crime scene reconstruction), traffic accidents, missing people, etc. appealing to the public for information, as well as introducing the latest police events, gadgets, aspects and responsibilities of different groups in the Police Force, and educating the public, e.g. how to be alert about fraudsters and, very often, how to use the emergency hotline, 999, responsibly, although the reconstructions are in Cantonese with English subtitles used in Police Magazine.
