The director of the Judiciary Police, Chau Wai Kuong, announced on February 16th that his force had opened files on 10,737 cases in 2014-an increase of 4.5% compared with 2013.

Although the overall increase in crime was modest, police statistics show a worrying surge in cases of extortion, abduction and violent crime. Abductions, many of which involved individuals being held against their will over unpaid gambling debts, rose from 150 cases in 2013 to 220 in 2014. The number of extortion cases increased by 50.7% to 101 over the same period, and there was a big jump in cases involving blackmail over nude Internet photographs. The territory's role as a gambling centre and its history of activity by Triads (organised-crime gangs) provide fertile ground for criminal pursuits. The authorities noted that they had been alerted to 3,023 crimes on casino premises in 2014, marking an increase of 16.3% relative to 2013.

Under pressure from the mainland government, Macau has introduced a tougher approach to the policing of certain crimes in recent months. A prominent casino executive was detained in a prostitution case in January 2015. It is nevertheless unclear whether the current, politicised campaign, with its focus on money-laundering and prostitution, will be effective in reining in crime more generally.
