Police Officer Requirements - Hawaii



Hawaii is the only state without a single entity to oversee police officer training and performance standards, raising questions about the qualifications of Hawaii’s law enforcement officers.



An applicant must:

  Be at least 21 years of age by closing deadline.

  Be a U.S. citizen (either born or naturalized), national or permanent resident alien of the United States, or eligible under federal law for unrestricted employment in the United States.

  Have a valid driver’s license from Hawaiʻi or comparable license from another state.

  Have a combination of education and experience substantially equivalent to graduation from high school.

  Be qualified to carry and possess any firearm or ammunition in accordance with state and federal laws. Persons convicted of domestic violence, whether convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, will not be considered for a position because federal law prohibits them from carrying firearms.
