The seven members of the Hawaii Police Department’s 74th Recruit Class were recognized August 14th during ceremonies held at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel.
Three of the recruits received special recognition for their excellence in training. They were Secretary/Treasurer Chere Rae Lyons, who excelled in academic training, President Benjamin Nishimoto, who excelled in firearms training and Vice President Wyattlane Nahale, who excelled in physical fitness training.
The other recruits recognized were Courtney Bello, Joshua Flynn, Chester Franco and Jess Lambert.
The police recruits, who underwent five-and-a-half months of intensive training, will now undergo three-and-a-half more months of on-the-job field training with veteran police officers before they are qualified to work alone.
