In an emotional press conference at police headquarters early Sunday evening, Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard identified the slain officers as Tiffany Enriquez, a seven-year veteran of the Honolulu Police Department, and Kaulike Kalama, who had served nine years on the force.
The body camera footage that features Enriquez was recorded on May 28, 2019, the video shows. In it, an officer can be heard warning Hanel about abusing 911 emergency telephone services.
“Listen to me, because you have broken the law,” an officer can be heard saying. “Makes a false complaint or reports false information in reckless disregard of the risk that a public safety agency will respond by dispatching emergency services.”
