The police chief had been with MPD for nearly 30 years before his appointment.

The police chief said in an interview with Maui News that his retirement “did not have anything to do with” a police investigation that revealed Faaumu was seen leaving the parking lot of a Kahului mall and allegedly reversed his vehicle into a parked motorcycle before driving away on Nov. 7, 2020.

A replacement has not been named as of Thursday, March 18.
