The Aloha Exchange Club of East Hawaiʻi recognized Officer Roberto Segobia on Thursday, Oct. 27, as the East Hawaiʻi “Officer of the Month” for October.

Segobia was honored for what Sgt. Chris Correia described as his “constant vigilance and continuous dedication to duty.”

Sgt.  Correia highlighted several examples:

  • For stopping a drunk driver while off duty and on his way home after working a 12-hour shift.
  • For recovering a stolen vehicle and arresting the driver on drug charges while driving home from another long shift.
  • For proactively helping a missing child with special needs before dispatchers had a chance broadcast a missing person report to patrol officers.

“Officer Segobia has established a reputation among his peers as a ‘24-hour policeman’ who dedicates himself to police work whether on or off-duty,”  Sgt. Correia wrote in nomination papers.

As “Officer of the Month,” Segobia is eligible for “Officer of the Year.”
