Mahalo for supporting the ACLU of Hawaii’s efforts to bring much-needed transparency to policing practices in our state!

The police body camera bill, S.B. 2411, would have set the best, most comprehensive policies of any body camera law in the nation.

Unfortunately, this bill was met with opposition from Hawaii’s police departments – who largely opposed every other bill this session designed to promote police transparency and accountability – and the bill did not make it through conference committee (despite having passed both the House and the Senate on a combined vote of 69-4).

The ACLU will continue to monitor Hawaii police practices, including use of deadly force, property seizure, and surveillance, and we will count on your support next session.
