Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard said, "If true, these allegations violate the core values the HPD stands for. Our officers are sworn to uphold the right of all persons, and I expect every officer to treat every member of the public fairly and with respect. Personally, I am appalled at the behavior, if it is true, and appropriate action will be taken."

#3 Case Handed Over To FBI As It Involves Potential Abuse Of Police Power

The department performed an initial internal investigation before contacting the FBI to look into the matter as according to Ballard the case involves potential abuse of Police power so the case was referred to the FBI.

Commenting on the scandal, Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell said, "Although these officers are presumed innocent, we need an independent agency to investigate exactly what occurred and whether these officers engaged in civil rights abuses. Chief Ballard has promised to transform the Honolulu Police Department from a warrior mentality to a guardian mentality, and this is an approach to community policing that I wholeheartedly support."
