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 is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.





John Jardine was twenty-one when he joined the Honolulu Police Department. Over time, he became a Honolulu Police Department legend.  His autobiographical look at cases from the 1920s through the 1940s, is an exceptional look at underworld crime and Crimes in Honolulu.
