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.

Before you go
Civil Beat readership has more than doubled in the past nine months. That’s incredible growth for which we’re so grateful.
But for a small nonprofit newsroom that provides free content with no paywall, readership growth alone can’t sustain our journalism. The truth is that less than 1% of our monthly readers are financial supporters.
To remain a viable business model for local news, we need a higher percentage of readers-turned-donors.
