The Hawaiʻi Police Department will continue to conduct random enforcement projects using both uniformed and plainclothes officers in Downtown Hilo as well as other public locations where consumption of alcohol is prohibited.

Police ask anyone who may witness individuals drinking in a public place where liquor is prohibited to call the police department’s non-emergency line at (808) 935-3311.
