Nearly once a week, on average, a Honolulu police officer is disciplined for misconduct. Yet the details of that bad behavior are never publicly revealed. More than a quarter of those incidents can be classified as criminal behavior — assaults, domestic violence, fleeing the scene of an accident, even criminal convictions. Civil Beat used annual summaries of misconduct provided to the Legislature by the Honolulu Police Department to compile 20 years of disciplinary action into an interactive database. Recent years include more information about officer misconduct, including whether an incident was sent to prosecutors or a disciplinary action was challenged by the union.
2013-4: The officer was involved in a motor vehicle collision involving three vehicles. It was determined that this officer was impaired during the incident. It was further determined that the officer was the driver of the vehicle that initiated the accident.
2001-55: Was involved in a motor vehicle collision while off duty, and failed to immediately report the collision. Falsely reported a motor vehicle theft as well as falsified the motor vehicle collision report.
