Lingle: Death of Officer Chad Morimoto Devastating Loss for Family, Community
By Gov. Linda Lingle @ 6:14 PM :: 6514 Views :: Energy, Environment


From July 23, 2012
“Every day, our state’s law enforcement officers lay their lives on the line to protect and serve the people of Hawaii. Today’s tragic death of one of ’Honolulu’s finest’ during a motorcycle training exercise in Mililani is a devastating loss for his family and for our entire community. Honolulu Police Officer Chad Morimoto, and his family, are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
“Officer Chad Morimoto’s death is a painful reminder of how dangerous the jobs of police officers are, both in training and in the field. May we use this time to honor the many officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice. We also should honor their families for the burden they bear.
Members of the State of Hawaii Organization of Police Officers (SHOPO) have always had my commitment to ensuring their safety, because they ensure ours.”
