The Hawaii State Senate confirmed Thursday Theodore I. Sakai as Director of the Department of Public Safety.

Sakai has been serving as the interim Director of Public Safety since June 1, 2012, when he was appointed by the Governor.

“Mr. Sakai will undoubtedly serve the public well as Director of the Department of Public Safety as this is his second tour of duty in this capacity. He is very accomplished and experienced in the criminal justice field after working in the profession for over forty-three years,” said Sen. Will Espero, chair of the Senate Committee on Public Safety, Intergovernmental and Military Affairs.

He previously served as the Director of Public Safety from 1998 to 2002.  Sakai received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and his Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
