Sound off to police in Kohala


The Hawaii Police Department will hold a community meeting on Tuesday, April 17, from noon to 2 p.m. at the Kohala Intergenerational Center.

The purpose of the meeting is to allow the public to meet the Police Department’s command staff and to discuss concerns with the police chief and commanders who oversee police operations in the Kohala District.

This Kohala event continues the district community meetings, which are rotated throughout the eight police districts on the Big Island. To aid police commanders in focusing on specific concerns, it is requested that participation be limited to persons who live or work in the Kohala District.

Those interested in participating but unable to attend may call Capt. Albert Jason Cortez at 889-6540, stop by the Kohala police station in Kapaau, or e-mail their concerns or comments to copsysop@hawaiipolice.com.
