MAYOR ISSUES STATEMENT ON RETIREMENT OF POLICE CHIEF

 

            In response to Police Chief Lee Donohue’s announcement today that he would retire July 1, Mayor Jeremy Harris issued the following statement:

 

            “Chief Donohue has provided excellent leadership for our police department. He has brought crime way down on Oahu and made our City one of the safest of its size in the nation. He’s worked closely with my administration to provide safety and security to our communities by opening new sub-stations in Chinatown and Waikiki, the new Kapolei Police Station, and later this year, the East Honolulu sub-station at Diamond Head.

 

            “He leaves the Honolulu Police Department well prepared to respond to any homeland security issues. Not only do they have the best equipment and technology, they are the best trained officers in the nation.”
