Over the years, Hawai‘i Army and Air National Guard facilities have been featured in many movie and television programs. Watching the original Hawai‘i 50 and Magnum PI shows, you can see Guard facilities in the backgrounds.

During the second Hawai‘i 50’s 10 year run, the production company used Guard facilities many different times. On August 5, 2015, the production crew put up signage that made the State Department of Defense building into the Honolulu Police Department headquarters. The HPD logo on the police sedan and the facility doors are close but different from the real logo.

The “D” had fallen when the photograph was taken, but was replaced before filming.
