Investigations result in police reprimands
Suspensions ranging from one to three days were ordered for three Maui Police Department officers as part of internal investigations that concluded in July, police reported.
A three-day suspension was ordered for an officer who made a prank call that was considered offensive to another employee in July 2012. Another three-day suspension was ordered for unprofessional and disrespectful conduct to the instructor during training in December.
An officer was suspended for one day for failing to report to work as scheduled in October.
A written reprimand was issued to an officer who was reversing from a parking lot and hit another vehicle in February.
Oral reprimands were given to officers for three other motor vehicle accidents.
One was for an officer who was operating a police car in emergency mode and collided into another vehicle in October. Two others were for February incidents - where an officer was turning around a vehicle and struck a protruding object, and where an officer executing a turn hit a parked vehicle.
The names of the officers were not made public.
People who wish to comment on the Maui Police Department or the actions of its employees may contact the employee's commander or write to Chief Gary Yabuta in care of the Maui Police Department, 55 Mahalani St., Wailuku 96793.
