Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha announced Friday he will not put officers on rotating shifts.

The department had been considering rotating shifts after a certain number of weeks in order to make officers more well-rounded.

“In handling burglary reports, thefts, robbery, sex assault cases and then, of course, DUI cases, which predominantly happen during the evening hours,” SHOPO president Tenari Maafala previously explained.

Currently, officers with the Honolulu Police Dept. work five nine-hour shifts in day, afternoon or evening rounds.
