The Aloha Exchange Club of East Hawai’i recognized Officer Erhard Autrata on Thursday (September 23) as “Officer of the Month” for September.
Autrata, a patrol officer with the South Hilo District, was honored for what Sergeant George Makua described as his “dedication, integrity and diligence.”
Autrata made 19 DUI arrests and issued 39 citations in the month of July and has had perfect attendance for the past three years. “Despite the stress, heavy case load, late hours and court on days off, he still takes pride in coming to work and serving the community,” Makua said.
As “Officer of the Month,” Autrata is eligible for “Officer of the Year.”
The East Hawaii “Officer of the Month” award is a project of the Aloha Exchange Club of Hilo.
