Kauai police crime roundup: Sergeant dismissed for sex assault, etc, etc, etc
By Andrew Walden @ 1:56 AM :: 6183 Views

Kauai Garden Isle reviews 47 cases of alleged police misconduct...

Of those investigations that resulted in disciplinary action, the most serious infraction was by a sergeant who was dismissed for “commission of a criminal act,” specified as sexual assault.
A lieutenant was suspended for 20 days for unauthorized off-duty employment, falsification of records, failure to adhere to departmental policies and being untruthful during the investigation. An officer earned a five-day suspension for conduct that is “contrary to departmental standards and not practiced under the color of police authority.”

A civilian was suspended for 30 days for failure to “provide assistance to an ailing citizen in a timely manner that placed the person’s well-being at risk.”

(That's just three of 47....)

Oh yes, the Kauai resort where a rape was reported Jan 18 was finally revealed as Lihu‘e’s Kaua‘i Beach Villas Jan 29....  LINK

No update on the stolen safe found on a Kauai Police officer's property .... a coincidence of course....favorite quote:  The detective said the burglars “know what they’re doing....”

The safe was stolen from the KCC Bookstore on the second day of classes..."A KCC maintenance worker repairing the doors to the bookstore said it appeared that the thieves rolled the safe out of the bookstore, down the sidewalk past buildings and uphill to the new bypass road where it was loaded onto a vehicle and trucked off."
