The memorial in honor of fallen officers Tiffany Enriquez and Kalama at HPD’s Waikiki substation grew overnight.

HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Hawaii Bankers Association (HBA) announced that the branches of eight of its members across the state of Hawaii will collect monetary donations for The Officers Enriquez & Kalama Memorial Fund.
