Honolulu police officers to be honored during National Police Week

Interview: National Police Week in Honolulu

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - We talked with Officer Ben Lloyd with the Community Outreach arm of the Honolulu Police Department who shared about today's ceremonies with the beginning of National Police Week; it was started in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy.

We also got a tour of the Honolulu Police Department's Museum which includes a memorial to our fallen officers.  It also features the history of the department and the lives of our HPD men and women.

The museum is open to the public Monday through Friday mornings, from 9:00am-3:00pm and the admission is free.

Mahalo to our men and women in uniform and all the things they do for our community here in Hawaii and across the nation.
