By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 02:18 p.m. HST, Oct 12, 2013

A class of 21 new deputies will be joining the ranks of the Hawaii sheriff division.

The recruits graduated Friday during a ceremony at the Hawaii Okinawa Center.

They underwent nearly 1,000 hours of training, which included physical fitness and instruction on law and procedures.

The state Department of Public Safety says 19 of the new deputies will be assigned to Oahu. One will be assigned to Maui and one will be assigned to the Big Island.

Deputies are assigned to locations statewide including airports and courts.

What in the world do these guys actually do? there are many hundreds of deputies, tens of thousands of outstanding warrants - with hardly any arrests of these criminals on the loose. I went to the Kapolei State office building recently and there were 11 people standing around gabbing. 2 were to check incoming people through the scanner, and 9 state deputies just gabbing. I asked them "are they all needed to guard a door" and several told me " to go f*** myself"..... our state employees working hard for us.

With the kind of attitude you have, the sheriffs told you exactly what you should do with yourself.
