Steve McGarrett comes to Hawaii to avenge his father's death but when the governor offers his own task force, he accepts. He picks up team members on the way, Danny Williams, the head detective on his father's case, Chin Ho Kelly, a former HPD Detective who was fired for accused corruption and McGarrett's father's old patrol partner, Kono Kalakaua, a Cadet at the Police Academy who's 1 week from graduating, and Captain Lou Grover, a former Chicago PD Head of SWAT.
Did You Know?
Chin Ho was originally dismissed from the Honolulu Police Department after being falsely accused of taking bribes. Steve chose him for the task force because he didn't believe the accusations, and because Chin Ho was his father's former partner. It is later revealed in the latter half of Season 1 that Chin's uncle was the one who was involved (to pay off medical bills where Chin became a fall guy who took the blame where he was protecting his extended family) which resulted in his reinstatement to HPD as a lieutenant.
