Officer Bronson Kaimana Kaliloa

Funeral Services for fallen officer Bronson Kaimana Kaliloa will be held at the Hilo Civic Auditorium on Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018.

Kaliloa was killed in the line of duty on Tuesday, July 17. He is survived by his wife Casey and three children.

Officials with the Hawaiʻi County Police Department say the original venue was changed to a larger one at the Hilo Civic Auditorium in anticipation of a large attendance.

The memorial will start with family visitation only from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., followed by general visitation from 8:30 to 10 a.m., and service from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Following the service there will be a funeral procession leaving the Civic Auditorium, traveling out to the Puna District passing the Pāhoa Police Station, and then back into Hilo passing the Central Hilo Police Station and ending at Homelani Cemetery for the burial service to follow.


The funeral procession will be limited to family members and first responders; however, the burial service will be open to the public.
