The Hawaiʻi Island Safety and Security Professionals Association recognized Community Policing Officer Kristi Crivello as “Kohala Officer of the Quarter” during a ceremony November 14 at the Four Seasons Resort Hualālai.

Officer Crivello, who is assigned to the South Kohala District, was honored for discovering and solving a felony theft case before it was reported.

Crivello routinely follows up on thefts and burglaries by making checks with pawn shops and gold buyers. During such a visit to a gold merchant, she observed an unusual piece of jewelry that had been sold under suspicious circumstances. Crivello’s detailed investigation led to the identity of the owner and to confirmation that the item had been stolen. Further investigation led to the arrest of the suspect, who was charged with felony theft and theft of prescription medications.

Lieutenant Juergen Canda, who nominated Crivello for the honor, commended her for her diligence, dedication to duty and professionalism. “This outstanding accomplishment by Officer Crivello is indicative of a high degree of dedication and exemplifies the Department’s Vision Statement of providing the highest quality police services to the communities of Hawaiʻi County,” Canda said.

The Hawaiʻi Island Safety and Security Professionals Association is an organization of hotel and airport security managers and visitor industry professionals. Its “Kohala Officer of the Quarter” program is an opportunity to recognize outstanding officers from the North Kohala and South Kohala districts.
