HPD to Hold ‘Active Shooter’ Presentation
The Hawaiʻi Police Department will hold an “active shooter” presentation for the public in Keaʻau on Monday, Aug. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Keaʻau Community Center, located behind the Keaʻau police substation.
The presentation 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.
They will also provide additional resources for participants so they can continue their education on this topic, followed by a question-and-answer segment.
Persons unable to attend may obtain “active shooter” information by viewing the “Active Shooter/Violence Awareness” page on the Hawaiʻi Police Department’s website under the “Services” tab.
