Thousands Attend Service for Fallen HPD Officer
Thousands attended funeral services in Hilo to honor fallen Hawai‘i Police Officer Bronson Kaliloa, who was shot in the line of duty and died on July 18, 2018.
Officer Kaliloa was a 10-year veteran of the police force, and served in the Puna Patrol Division that has provided around-the-clock support to the community dealing with ongoing volcanic activity and lava flows from Kīlauea.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard presented congressional certificates to Officer Kaliloa’s wife, Casey, and to Hawaiʻi County Police Chief Paul Ferreira, with a tribute to Kaliloa’s life that is printed in the Congressional Record.
