Fallen Hawaii island officer added to memorial in downtown Honolulu


Hawaii Police Department Officer Bronson Kaliloa died in July, shot during a traffic stop on Hawaii island.

On Friday night, his name was placed on the wall of the Hawaii Law Enforcement Memorial in downtown Honolulu.

The foundation held a memorial service for him and unveiled his name plate.

“This is overwhelming for us, the outpouring of support that has come from the state,” said Hawaii County Police Chief Paul Ferreira. “If you look at all of the faces around here, all the different law enforcement agencies that are represented.”

The Hawaii Law Enforcement Memorial was built in 2016 to honor the law enforcement officers from all agencies in Hawaii who died in the line of duty.

If you’d like to visit it, it’s located near the Kalanimoku building on S. Beretania Street.
