UIPA Memo 09-7
Police Chief's Evaluation
A member of the public asked whether the current Honolulu
Police Chief’s past performance evaluations and goals must
be provided to a requester under part II of the UIPA.
OIP found that because of the importance of
the position of Honolulu Police Chief, the public interest in the
Police Chief’s past performance evaluations and goals generally
outweighs his privacy interest. The evaluations at issue did not
contain sensitive health or financial information that might carry
an elevated privacy interest. Thus, OIP found no basis under the
UIPA for the Police Commission to deny access to any part of the
performance evaluations and goals.
