Honolulu Police Commission Asks for Public Input

Cory Lum/Civil Beat

The Honolulu Police Commission is seeking public input for the next chief of police. The commission is asking for input from individuals and community-based organizations representing communities disproportionately impacted by police mistreatment.

Organizations can formally present their material at a Commission meeting. Individuals may also provide input and written testimony.

The Commission is asking presenters and testifiers to focus on the following three questions when giving their input:

  1. What are the skills and capabilities that the Commission should be looking for from the new Chief of Police?
  2. What are some questions you would like candidates for the Chief of Police to answer?
  3. What does your organization think that the new Chief's priorities should be when they take over the job?

The most recent Chief, Susan Ballard retired in May of this year.
