Cybercrimes expert joins Honolulu prosecutor team

By Associated Press


The former head of the Honolulu Police Department's white collar crime unit has joined the Honolulu prosecutor's office.

Thanks to a federal grant, Chris Duque will serve as an investigator in the prosecuting attorney's white collar crime unit.

The prosecutor's office says Duque is one of Hawaii's leading cybercrimes investigators.

Prosecuting Attorney Keith Kaneshiro said in a statement this week that cybercrimes are a major threat because they can involve anything from identity theft to financial fraud to child pornography.

Duque was also instrumental in forming the Hawaii Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Since retiring from HPD, he's been an educational speaker and consultant on cybercrimes.

Whatever, he probably just wanted to leave HPD but could not afford to live on his retirement.

You have no clue about this gentleman. He was HPD's go to man for anything computer related and was responsible for putting many bad guys away. He retired several years ago and since has been going to schools and businesses teaching cyber safety. He does not do this job for the money, he does it mostly to teach and protect our children from the cyber bad guys out there, and there are plenty. So before you speculate on the reason he took this job maybe take the time to check your facts and maybe even get to know this gentleman who is so willing to give to our keiki and protect them from pervs or maybe even from a "Bully" like you.

Our young tech babies probably could do a better job and they need these jobs. "Double-dippers" do impact on the unemployment statistics. May not have his experience, but young are quick learners. I am 88 and have been retired since 12/30/1989.

88, congradulations! Do you have any clue as to the type and amount of cyber crimes being commited? Any idea as to how widespread identity theft is? Do you know how many children are being affected by what goes on the internet? Well, he does and has experience dealing with it and providing valuable assistance. Your "young tech babies" may be computer smart, but have no experience dealing with any of these issues on a law enforcement level. The prosecutor needs an INVESTIGATOR who has experience preparing cases for his office, not just some wannabe computer geek.
