Please welcome Michael Wong of Chinatown Crime Watch.

Chinatown Crime Watch is a CCBA program established in 2005 under the administration of Roman Chan to fight the increasing occurrence of robberies, assaults, and purse snatchings in the Chinatown community.

Under the leadership of Michael Wong and Gilbert Ho, volunteers patrol the streets of Chinatown daily, in snow and rain, armed with nothing but a walkie talkie and a blue Crime Watch vest.

Compared to other programs, the Chinatown Crime Watch program is a great success and is modeled by other community crime watch programs.
