The Technology Crime Division (TCD), under the Commercial Crime Bureau (CCB), is tasked with carrying out technology related investigations, collection of digital evidence, forensic examinations of computer systems, and liaison with local and international agencies for timely and efficient intelligence and experience exchange.

Technology Crime Prevention Unit (TCPU)

The Technology Crime Prevention Unit (TCPU) under TCD is responsible for the formulation and implementation of crime prevention programs on computer security and technology crime related matters.

TCPU is devoted to raising the awareness of technology crime prevention amongst the general public.

Technology crime information

One of the key objectives of the TCPU is to prevent the public from being victims of technology crime.

We are delighted to provide technology crime prevention related information and professional advices to the public for references.

Publications and other educational materials

The TCPU publishes a variety of materials that carry messages to promote the awareness of information security.

Security awareness talks and presentations

Officers of the TCPU will regularly hold or also work in partnership with other agencies to deliver talks and presentations on technology crime prevention related topics.

“Commercial Crime Bureau Chief Superintendent Chung Siu-yeung said there will be 27 police officers working in the center, which is expected to strengthen the co-ordination between police and government departments,” said the CWHK article, “as well as both local and overseas stakeholders when major information systems come under attack.”
