New Pahoa Police Station Open for Business Effective May 2nd

Media Release:

The Hawai’i Police Department announces that the new Pāhoa police station will be open for business effective May 2. This station in lower Puna, which is larger and more modern than the Kea‘au police station, will serve the public temporarily as Puna’s main district station.

The Kea’au station, which is no longer large enough to meet the demands of a district station, will be converted to a substation until a more suitable facility for a main Puna station is acquired. The Puna District is the third busiest police district on the island—behind South Hilo and Kona.

The new Pāhoa station is located just north of Pāhoa town on Highway 130. Business hours of operation will be 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (except holidays and county furlough days).

The new expanded facility will offer enhanced services to the public. Beginning in May, citizens will be able to apply for gun permits and register firearms by appointment only on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Persons wishing to make an appointment for these services may call the station’s business number at 965-2716.

Driver’s license renewal and vehicle registration are already available in a portion of the new building operated by the County Department of Finance.

The public is reminded to call 911 in case of emergency or 935-3311 for non-emergency calls for service.
