U Memo 10-8
April 7, 2010
Police Policies – Revised G.O. 602

OIP was asked by the Hawaii County Police Department whether any portion of the revised G.O. 602 may be withheld in response to a request under part II of the UIPA.

In OIP Op. Ltr. No. 95-13, OIP discussed the rationale for withholding internal police policies, and opined that portions of the previous version of G.O. 602 could be withheld. Based upon its review of the revised G.O. 602 provided by Requester, OIP found that Sections III, VIII, and IX of the revised G.O. 602 may likewise be withheld for the reasons stated in OIP Op. Ltr. No. 95-13.
