This chapter provides an overview of a transformation in policing as Macau shifted from Portuguese colonial rule to becoming a Special Administrative Region (SAR) governed by the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Macau was originally a fi shing village located in the Pearl River Delta in Guangdong Province, Southern China. It is now a small city, with a permanent residential population of about half a million, known primarily for its gambling and tourism industries (Statistics and Census Service 2013). Macau was ruled by Portugal until sovereignty reverted to the PRC on 20 December 1999; it followed Hong Kong in becoming the PRC’s second SAR 1 (Mendes 2013: 28-29). Copyright © 2018 selection and editorial matter, Conor O’Reilly; individual chapters, the contributors.
