Mayor Caldwell Voices Strong Support For H.B. No. 285, H.D. 1 S.D. 2
Mayor Caldwell voices strong support for H.B. No. 285, H.D. 1 S.D. 2
HONOLULU -- Mayor Caldwell recently sent a letter to Senate President Ronald Kouchi and Speaker of the House Scott Saiki, voicing his strong support for expanding the public's access to information about police misconduct.
"Police officers have always had an incredibly challenging job that is even more challenging today," said Mayor Caldwell. "Our officers serve a critical role in protecting and guarding all of our civil liberties. The vast majority are dedicated, hard-working and upstanding men and women. I am confident that the increased transparency and accountability provided by this bill would both improve the public's trust in police and elevate the police department as a whole. It is time to recognize that protecting public safety and promoting transparency and accountability are not incompatible goals. I urge the legislature to support this measure."
