The Hawaiʻi Police Department will make two “active shooter” presentations in North Kohala on Saturday (August 27).
The presentations, which are open to the public by reservation only, will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Kohala Inter-Generational Center located at Kamehameha Park.
The presentations are designed to help individuals increase their survivability should they encounter an active shooter or other type of active violent incident. Police will provide information on previous incidents of mass violence, recent events, best practices for those caught in such situations, law enforcement’s response, and how to work together as a community toward prevention. They will also provide additional resources for participants so they can continue their education on this topic, followed by a question-and answer segment.
Seating is limited. Persons wishing to attend must make a reservation by contacting the Hawaiʻi Community Federal Credit Union at 930-7700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Persons unable to attend may obtain “active shooter” information by viewing the “Active Shooter/Violence Awareness” page on the Hawaiʻi Police Department’s website (www.hawaiipolice.com) under the “Services” tab.
