Surveillance video of HPD sergeant will not be released per prosecutor’s request

Honolulu police will not release the full surveillance video showing an off-duty sergeant assaulting his ex-girlfriend as initially planned.

The full video was supposed to be shown to everyone at a briefing on Tuesday, but some lawmakers did not like that idea and decided to watch it at a later time in private.

Now, they won’t get that chance.

The prosecutor’s office says it asked HPD to keep the video confidential while the office conducts its own investigation.

In a statement, the office said: “Police have been asked to keep the full surveillance videotape confidential while the prosecutor’s office conducts its own investigation. The responsibility of deciding whether to charge (name removed) is now in the hands of the prosecuting attorney. The office is working toward a resolution in the case and must be allowed to pursue its investigation as it sees fit. At this time, that requires that the full video remain confidential.”
