Honolulu Prosecutor Promises Independent Investigations Into Police Shootings

Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney Steve Alm said on Thursday that his office will conduct independent investigations into two recent fatal shootings by Honolulu police officers and will approach the review process differently than his predecessors.

“This is a new administration, and we are looking at all the practices and procedures, and we are going to do things differently,” Alm said at a press conference. “I believe it is critical to have an independent but thorough, objective investigation into both of these cases and for any future police-involved shooting of civilians.”

In the past, HPD would investigate its own officers after they’d killed someone and would send their completed investigation – along with their conclusions and recommendations – to prosecutors a year or more after the incident, Alm said.

Now, police are cooperating with the prosecutor’s office to immediately provide reports and evidence, including body camera footage, Alm said.
