Civil Beat complied 13 years of Honolulu Police Department legislative summaries on misconduct and discipline into an interactive database.
We classified the incidents into 22 categories of misconduct by type. We came up with the categories — for instance, HPD doesn’t classify misconduct as domestic violence — that we thought would help readers quickly understand what officers are getting into trouble for and the punishment they receive.
Review the incidents at cops.civilbeat.org; you can filter by category and punishment received. To look at each incident and see how we classified it, we’ve provided a link to the raw data below.

Support local journalism
Studies have shown that when local journalism disappears, government financing costs go up, fewer people run for public office, elected officials become less responsive to their constituents, and voter turnout decreases. Our small nonprofit newsroom works hard every day to present local news in a deep and transparent way, without fear or favor. We also rely on donations from readers like you to keep us afloat. The more support we receive; the stronger, more sustainable our journalism becomes; the more accountable we are to you. Please consider supporting our Honolulu Civil Beat with a tax-deductible gift.
