HPD Defends Purchase of 40 ATVs with CARES ACT Money

HPD spent $625,000 to double its fleet of ATVs. Prior to the pandemic, HPD asserts that only 26 of its inventory were working.

HPD's recent purchase adds an additional 40 NEW ATVs, 18 NEW utility vehicles, and 9 NEW utility terrain vehicles.

Honolulu City Councilman Tommy Waters, said the spending left him “speechless.”

The chair of the Council’s Public Safety committee said the body didn’t have any oversight on how the money was spent.

“I get emails from people every day asking for help and we learn that we’re spending money on ATVs...When people are hurting, when people need help, it’s hard to justify that.”
