The Aloha Exchange Club of East Hawai’i recognized Officer Lloyd Ishikawa on Thursday (October 28) as “Officer of the Month” for October.
Ishikawa, a patrol officer with the Puna District, was honored for what Sergeant Juergen Canda called “his dedication to duty and initiative” that led him to make five bench warrant arrests, close three felony all-points bulletins, recover a stolen vehicle and locate a runaway “all within a span of one hour.”
On July 29, Officer Ishikawa responded to the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision to assist in locating a wanted person. He located the person and assisted in arresting him for two outstanding bench warrants. While in the subdivision, Ishikawa located three adults and a juvenile while investigating complaints about suspicious persons in the neighborhood. Two of the adults were wanted for outstanding bench warrants and felony auto theft all-points bulletins and the juvenile was a reported runaway. The third adult was in possession of a stolen vehicle.
“This is a tremendous feat of police work by Puna’s most senior officer, who not only leads by example in his dedication to duty, but with the vigor and enthusiasm of a rookie,” Canda wrote in his nomination papers.
As “Officer of the Month,” Ishikawa 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.
