The group painted over the graffiti, power washed a building and sidewalks and installed new window designs. Happy Holidays! #honolulupd #honolulupolice #hpd

Officers Troy Kadota, Kenji Swenson, and Glenn Chong received Certificates of Merit for an incident involving an armed male at a Kapahulu supermarket on August 20, 2014. Officer Kadota arrived first and saw a man with a large kitchen knife chasing two women around a car in the parking lot. Officer Kadota was able to distract the suspect until Officers Swenson and Chong arrived. Officer Swenson ordered the suspect to drop the knife, but the suspect refused. Officer Swenson deployed his electric gun, but the armed suspect was able to charge toward Officer Swenson. Officer Chong then deployed his electric gun as the suspect ran towards Officer Swenson. The deployment temporarily incapacitated the suspect, allowing the officers to remove his weapon and arrest him. #honolulupolice #honolulupd #hpd

The morning rush-hour traffic was busier than usual when a suspect escaped from a police vehicle on the H-1 Freeway on August 4, 2014. The male was enroute to a hospital for a mental evaluation when he broke free from his restraints and climbed out the rear window on the driver's side of the vehicle. The suspect ran onto the roadway, dodging several vehicles before trying to climb over the center median. Fortunately, off­ duty Honolulu Police Department officer Nicholas Tiglao, FBI Special Agent Grant Knorr, and an unknown male were in the right place at the right time. The three left their vehicles and stopped the suspect, who was transported to the hospital. Due to their quick thinking and involvement, the men possibly prevented a serious motor vehicle collision from occurring. Officer Tiglao received the Certificate of Merit and FBI Special Agent Knorr received the Civilian Certificate of Merit. #honolulupolice #honolulupd #hpd
