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.”
