Mission Statement

Our mission is to make people laugh, especially now. People often turn to their favorite comedy after a bad day. Also, Asian-Americans/Pacific Islanders are often portrayed as offensive stereotypes. Waikiki PD shows all the shades of our complexity in an often overlooked genre for us.

The Story

Did you have a bad day and you need a good laugh?




Are you sick and tired of non-locals playing us on TV and in the movies?



Waikiki PD to the rescue.  We may not be the best cops in Hawaii but we get the job done.



We need your help finishing Waikiki PD the Movie Part 2! 



We would be thrilled if you want to get some merchandise like a t-shirt or a mug. 

Visit for that.



All of us are all so proud to live and be a part of Hawaii.  We know you are feel the same way about our island home.  This is why we are so passionate about telling our local stories.  



We need more entertaining shows and movies about locals by locals.



If you want movies about locals by locals, then locals need to help and support in every way you can.  Supporting local art means sharing the project and buying the movie and merchandise.




We know it's expensive in Hawaii but how much did you spend on movies, Netflix, etc. from the mainland?  Please buy local.



We need your help to share this movie.  Tell all your friends and neighbors!



Share the campaign and the movie on all your social media, text messages, and emails.  


We want every man, woman, and teenager to watch Waikiki PD.



These are first big films and it's only going to get better from here.

About This Team

We are very lucky to have some of Hawaii's best improvisors to work on Waikiki PD.  It was an awesome time to film with every single one of them.  The hardest part was trying not to laugh during takes.
