The Hawaiʻi Police Department will host an “active shooter” presentation in South Kohala on Monday, Sept. 26.

The presentation, which is open to the public, will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Waimea Elementary School cafeteria.

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.
