Statistics and Laws in Hawaii

Follow the links below to view some of Hawaii’s domestic violence laws as well as national organizations' statistics and information.

Domestic Violence incidents can also be classified under a multitude of other related offenses, ranging from felony arrest for assault to a misdemeanor arrest for harassment, or a property offense (e.g., criminal property damage). Unfortunately these reports and arrests that involve domestic violence and family violence, particularly the felony level offenses, are not readily identified as such and therefore are not included in domestic violence statistics.

To find the full text of current Hawaii statutes go to the Hawaii State Legislature website and look under Status & Documents.
