Media Release

The Big Island Visitors Security Association recognized Officer Cory Gray as “Kohala Officer of the Quarter” during a ceremony Friday (June 13) at the Fairmont Orchid resort in South Kohala.

Officer Gray was honored for his dedication to duty and diligence in DUI investigations.

In January, Gray was assigned to a special enforcement effort initiated in the South Kohala District to increase DUI enforcement. From January to March, the district’s DUI enforcement nearly doubled, and Gray made half of the arrests himself. His efforts contributed to a zero DUI fatality rate in the South Kohala District.

Gray’s achievements were an inspiration to his co-workers. As a result, he was selected to be a field training officer, allowing him to train a recruit officer in how to detect and investigate DUI violators.

The Big Island Visitors Security Association is an organization of hotel and airport security managers and visitor industry professionals. The “Kohala Officer of the Quarter” is a newly-formed program for the organization to recognize outstanding officers from the North Kohala and South Kohala districts.
