This action is taken in honor of Hawaiʻi Police Department Officer Bronson K. Kaliloa, whose memorial service will be at the Afook Chinen Civic Auditorium in Hilo on that day. Officer Kaliloa was shot and killed in the line of duty on July 17.

“We grieve with Officer Kaliloa’s family and friends, as we lay this courageous, generous and beloved man to rest,” Gov. Ige said. “His work with the Hawai‘i Police Department greatly improved our community, and we are forever changed by his loss.”
