An “active shooter” presentation by the Hawai’i Police Department will take place during an afternoon meeting in Kona on Nov. 19 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Kona police station conference room in Kealakehe.

The presentation is designed to help individuals increase their survivability should they encounter an active shooter or other type of active violent incident.

Information regarding previous incidents of mass violence, recent events, and best practices for those caught in such situations, as well as law enforcement’s response and how to work together as a community toward prevention, will be provided by police at the meeting.

Additionally, resources will be available for participants so they can continue their education on the topic. The presentation will end with a question-and-answer segment.
