Business Report: Hawaii Sen. Will Espero introduces bills aimed at improving police behavior
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
The vast majority of law enforcement officers behave responsibly on duty and off. But it would be unrealistic to pretend there are no exceptions, and officers who make bad decisions create backlash against fellow officers who never misbehave. Hawaii Senate Public Safety Chairman Will Espero has introduced a pair of bills, one to bar off-duty officers from drinking while armed, and another to require police agencies to keep disciplinary records for at least six months. Espero spoke with Howard Dicus.
