Text from the State Senate Certificate for Avery Choy:
Hawaii is greatly enriched by the contributions of dedicated public servants who give of themselves to make our communities better and safer places in which to live and work. Avery Choy, with nearly three decades of service with the Honolulu Police Department, is one such person.
Avery is entering a well-deserved retirement after a distinguished career which began in 1983. Starting as a recruit, she rose through the ranks to detective—serving in various districts from Waikiki to Wai’anae. She was especially effective in community policing programs and working with victims of sex crimes.
Leeward Coast residents are indeed fortunate to have benefited from Avery’s contributions while assigned to District 8—not only as a police officer, but as a role model for young people. In the late 1990’s she proved to be a very positive influence on the lives of youth living in Wai’anae public housing.
The Senate of the twenty-sixth Legislature joins with family and friends who have gathered at the Kapolei Recreation Center on Friday, February 3, 2012, as they celebrate Avery Choy’s many years of service to residents of the City and County of Honolulu. We wish her the very best in all her future endeavors—and a happy and healthy retirement.
