Senate confirms Miyamoto as U.S. Marshal for Hawaii
Gervin Miyamoto, a 38-year veteran of county, state and federal law enforcement agencies, has won confirmation from the U.S. Senate to become U.S. Marshal for Hawaii.
The announcement was made Friday by the offices of U.S. Sens. Daniel K. Inouye and Daniel K. Akaka.
Miyamoto, an Aiea resident, succeeds Mark "Dutch" Hanohano.
Miyamoto was a Honolulu police officer for 25 years and served as a special assistant to the late Chief Michael Nakamura. After retiring from HPD, he worked as the state's counterdrug coordinator before taking a job as law enforcement coordinator under then U.S. Attorney Ed Kubo.
