15 Honolulu police recruits to graduate Wednesday night

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – 15 Honolulu Police Department recruits will receive their badges in a ceremony Wednesday night. The event will take place at the Hawaii Okinawa Center at 7:00 PM.

The recruits, selected from hundreds of applicants, have just completed a six month of classroom and field training. After graduation, the recruits will be paired with veteran officers and assigned to the Waikiki or Chinatown stations where they will undergo additional field training.

One of the soon-to-be graduates has an identical twin already on the force. Three other recruits have close family members who are on the force or who are veterans.
