[WATCH] Whistleblower Honolulu Police Officer Denny Santiago Public Testimony

He’s a decorated officer, who has received some of HPD’s highest honors.

In 2004, Santiago was awarded a certificate of merit for his part in responding to a vehicle collision on Farrington Highway that took the life of a police officer and a 10-year-old girl.

Santiago and others were recognized at the time for their efforts in pulling victims from burning brush that had ignited after the accident.

He was honored again for his heroism in 2011 after he shot a gunman who had been firing a weapon in the Ala Moana area during a fight. Santiago received a Warrior Silver Medal of Valor, the department’s second-highest award.

Santiago told the commissioners that he was worried about the ongoing search for a new police chief for the department, especially as the U.S. Justice Department continues its probe into alleged corruption and abuse of power.
