On Thursday morning, the consulting group EB Jacobs presented their rankings and scores from the assessment panel to Honolulu police commissioners.
Each candidate was assigned a number, so that their identity and gender would not be known, but Hawaii News Now obtained the names and their corresponding scores. Former federal agent Tommy Aiu was listed as the candidate with the highest total amount of points.
Here are the full rankings:
Tommy Aiu, former federal agent 66.682
Kurt Kendro, retired HPD Major 60.639
Mark Lomax, retired Pennsylvania State Police Major 57.226
Paul Putzulu, retired HPD Acting Chief 57.150
Susan Ballard, HPD Major 56.710
Kevin Lima, retired HPD Assistant Chief 56.519
Jim Lowery, Arlington Police Assistant Chief 55.730
The formula for these scores and the dossiers for each finalist will be sent to the Honolulu Police commission for review. The candidates will go through background checks, psychological and physical exams over the next few weeks.
