where Kwong's colleagues

bid their final farewells.

(M.B. Lee, Ex-Deputy

Commissioner, Operation)

We are public servants.

And public trust forms

the very bedrock of our authority.

The moment we take up

the mantle of law enforcement,

our duty is to serve the community.

As police officers, we are committed

to protect citizens with courage,

to defend the vulnerable with compassion,

and to uphold justice

without fear or favour.

Standing now before our fallen colleagues,

(Sean Lau, Commissioner of Police)

we have but one choice:

to honor their sacrifice

(Phoenix Leung, )

with respect and righteousness,

(Senior Assistant Commissioner, DMS)

with respect and righteousness,

(Alan Au, Deputy Commissioner, Management)

with integrity and selfless devotion.

(David Mok, )

with integrity and selfless devotion.

(Senior Assistant Commissioner, DC&S)

with integrity and selfless devotion.

(Stephen Han, Deputy

Commissioner, Operation)

May peace be found in our hero's

undying souls.


May I know who's calling?

Please hold.



Commissioner Lau, remember me?

Yes, I do.

Your wife Michelle Chan

owns the Sunshine Flower Shop.

Your 5-year-old daughter attends

Sunnyside Kindergarten.

Her name, Josie Lau.

What do you want'?

I want you to release someone.


Officer Ken Wong from G4.

Rachel Ma

We're here for your protection.

We've picked up your daughter from school.

She's safe.

But we haven't located your wife.

Alan, call the Secretary of Justice

and Correctional Services.

I need Joe Lee transferred to headquarters.

No need.

You're challenging the HKPD.

I'm not challenging the HKPD.

I only kidnapped your wife.

I'm challenging you.

Don't interrupt your boss.

Whatever you do to me, I'll do to her.

I repeat, 5100-1075.

Make the video call in 10 minutes.

Someone will tell you what to do.


Let me talk to him?


What will it take

for you people to stop?

You know,

the HKPD doesn't negotiate with terrorists.

Sean Lau is not like you.

Family is his top priority.

As long as I'm alive,

I won't let you get away with this.

You just spent 350 seconds in this room.

By the time I finish this sentence,

Sean Lau will have wasted 6 minutes.


You are no longer

in charge.

(Video call connecting...)

Commissioner Lau, listen carefully.

Come alone with Joe Lee for the exchange.

You have 20 minutes to prepare.


Don't do this yourself.

You're the Commissioner.

If criminals can boss our Chief around,

the force will be compromised.

You can't put yourself at risk.

Their goal is to free Joe Lee.

I'll handle the rescue operation.

Sorry, sir.

I must remind you all that

we've already broken protocol by

bringing Joe Lee here.

The media, politicians and internet

have their eyes on us.

One false move,

it'll blow up into a scandal.

If we can't even protect our families,

what's the point of law enforcement?

Even if the hostage was a fellow officer,

I'd do the same.

I'll escort Joe Lee myself.

Sir, we understand how you feel, but

I take full responsibility!


I hereby enact emergency measures.


serve as witness and Acting Deputy.


you're now the Acting Commissioner.


take charge of the Cyber Crime Bureau.

One more thing,

next time listen carefully to what I say.

I want advice,

not comment.

Man To,


They keep switching IPs.

We're still tracking.


our 3rd Generation Command,

control & Communication (C3) System

is equipped with invisible tracking devices

I suggest that you and Joe Lee

wear two identical sets.

(Man To, Director of

Information Technology)

Yes, sir.

The last time

I brought Joe to justice,

I wanted him alive.

He deserved punishment,

not death.

If something goes wrong,

will you spare his life?

I promise you.

He'll get a fair trial.

I take that as a yes.

Do you mind

if I stay hereto keep an eye on him?


Team 1, we are behind the Commissioner.

Team 2, situation normal.



Morning sir.

Sir, all five units are ready.

Everyone, I'm now at the

Cyber Crime Bureau.

The 2 sets of tracking devices are active.

The blue dot is the Commissioner.

The red is Joe Lee.

Commissioner Lau,

you have multiple vehicles with you.

Lose them

or your wife loses an arm.


The caller has a counter-tracking device.

Keep trying-

Team 1 breaking off.

Team 2 taking over.

You've got some balls.

You asked for it!

The Commissioner changed lanes.

He's on Johnston Road now.

Well done, Commissioner.

Now, head to Ship Street.

Team 1 to 3, new location: Ship Street.
