The Hawaiʻi Police Department will offer an “active shooter” presentation in Honokaʻa on Tuesday, July 19.

The presentation, which is open to the public, will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the large conference room at the North Hawaiʻi Education and Research Center located at 45-539 Plumeria Street.

It is 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.

HPD will also provide additional resources for participants so they can continue their education on this topic, followed by a question-and answer segment.
