What does the 5-O stand for in hawaii 5-O?

Answer

When police refer to the force that they belong to they mention the digits indivdually. Without knowing the show I will say that they are part of Squad 50, or Preceint 50 or something like that. ANd 50 is the number of Hawaii's statehood.

Growing up in the hood when the cops were coming we referred to them as "5 0" and it usually meant that it was time for us to go.
