Citizens may report misconduct by any DLNR Conservation and Resource Enforcement Officer in an effort to address public concern, correct inappropriate behavior, and uphold the public’s trust in their enforcement officers and the Department of Land and Natural Resources.

Complaint Procedures

DLNR Division of Conservation and Resource Enforcement is evaluating applying for accreditation from the Commission for the Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), a nationally recognized organization.  In that process, DLNR would amend existing policies and adopt additional policies governing all aspects of enforcement operations, including internal investigations.
In the interim, DLNR has modified the complaint form utilized by the Honolulu Police Department for complaints by citizens alleging misconduct by enforcement officers.
Complaints should be filed within 60 days of the date of the incident to ensure the availability of accurate investigative information.  Waiting more than 60 days may result in unclear recall by witnesses, an inability to locate witnesses, or general confusion or distortion of the facts by parties involved.
Any aggrieved citizen should file a written statement using the form below.

Statements should be signed and notarized so that they may be relied upon in the investigation and in any resulting actions, should such be warranted.


Complaint forms should be mailed to the following address:

DLNR Division of Conservation and Resource Enforcement
ATTN: Chief of Enforcement
1151 Punchbowl Street
Kalanimoku Bldg, Rm. 311
