About the Honolulu Police Department
The Honolulu Police Department was formally established in 1932 in Honolulu,
the capital city of the State of Hawaii. The department’s jurisdiction is the City and County of Honolulu. It includes
the entire island of Oahu, which has a circumference of about 137 miles and an area of some 596 square miles. The estimated
resident population is about 900,700, which includes military personnel but not tourists. For police operations, the island
is divided into eight patrol districts; each district is subdivided into sectors and beats.
The department's headquarters is at 801 South Beretania Street in downtown
Honolulu. District stations are found in Kalihi, Pearl City, Kapolei, Wahiawa, and Kaneohe. The Honolulu Police Department
