HONOLULU – Attorney General Doug Chin announced today that criminal charges have been declined for now against a Securitas officer involved in the shooting death of a dog at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu on March 28, 2017. Today’s conclusion was reached after an independent review of the evidence by the Attorney General’s office and evaluation of relevant criminal laws and legal defenses available in the state of Hawaii.

Attorney General Chin said, “At this time, the evidence is insufficient to prove criminal charges beyond a reasonable doubt.”

The investigation was conducted by the Department of the Attorney General and evaluated by both a deputy attorney general from the criminal justice division and by Attorney General Chin.
