Hawaii's top law enforcement officers are being honored by a coalition of agencies in the state.
Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney Keith Kaneshiro won the Law Enforcement/Security Coalition of Hawaii's top award at a banquet on Thursday. A letter from the coalition says the award is presented for outstanding service and activity that benefits law enforcement, private security or criminal justice.
Kaneshiro congratulated other honorees by saying law enforcement is a truly noble profession.
Other honorees include an NCIS special agent who investigated a case in which three Pearl Harbor shipyard employees were accused of trying to sell 30,000 pounds of government scrap metal worth about $1 million.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Beverly Wee Sameshima won an award for earning a conviction against a couple who ran a large cockfighting operation in Waianae.
