Associated Press

Police Chief Lee Donohue gets high marks in his latest evaluation by the Honolulu Police Commission.

The commission said it is completely satisfied with Donohue's performance during the past year. It rated Donohue as "exemplary" and exceeding its expectations in leading and managing the Honolulu Police Department.

Donohue's vision for the department to maintain high performance, efficiency and respect and to enhance the work environment has been or is being accomplished, the commission said.

"Enhancing and improving the external and internal communications and the technology such as the information systems, telecommunications and police equipment to respond to the needs of the public is credited to Chief Donohue's leadership skills," the commission said.

Donohue, 60, has been with the Police Department since 1964, and was named chief in April 1998.

He was reappointed to a second five-year term last year.
