KPD recognizes Officer of the Month

Kaua‘i Police Chief Darryl Perry, along with the County of Kaua‘i Police Commission, has presented the department’s Officer of the Month recognition to Officer Tyson Relacion, a county news release states.

Officer Relacion was off-duty at about 2 p.m. on July 19 when he recognized a wanted male subject in the parking lot of the Kaua‘i Medical Clinic, the release states. Relacion called dispatch to confirm that the suspect was still wanted and to request assistance from on-duty personnel.

However, when the suspect began to leave the facility prior to KPD’s arrival, Relacion approached him.

 The suspect attempted to flee on foot but after a brief struggle, Relacion was able to gain control of the suspect until uniformed officers arrived.

The county said Relacion is being recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty by taking the initiative, while off duty, to recognize and apprehend a wanted suspect.
