‘Active shooter’ presentation set
The Hawaii Police Department is reminding the public that it will make an “active shooter” presentation during an evening community meeting in Hilo next week.
The meeting will take place from 5:30 p.m.-8 p.m. Monday, June 23 at Aunty Sally’s Luau Hale at 799 Piilani Street.
The first portion of the meeting will allow the public to meet the Police Department’s command staff and to discuss police related concerns with the police chief and commanders who oversee police operations in East Hawaii. This meeting, similar to district community meetings that have been rotated throughout the island’s eight police districts during the day, will allow attendance by citizens who cannot get away during the daytime.
The second portion of the meeting will be an awareness presentation to help individuals increase their chances of survival should they encounter an active shooter or other type of active violent situation. The presentation will provide information on previous incidents of mass violence, recent events, best practices for those caught in such a situation, understanding law enforcement’s response, and how to work together as a community to prevent these critical events from happening. It will also provide additional resources for participants so they may continue their education on this topic, followed by a question-and answer segment.
