MESSAGE FROM Lt. Robert Almeida

This month, a special mahalo goes out to Lt. William Derr, who has left the Community Policing Unit and has returned to South Hilo Patrol. A big “thank you” for the work he has done during his time in the unit.

Along the same lines, I would like to introduce myself, I’m Lt. Robert Almeida, and I have just been assigned to the Community Policing Unit. I am looking forward to this opportunity to get to know and serve our community in my new position.

Police Week was a success and thank your for all that attended. It is a somber event and we again lift up the officers and their families, that have given their all.

Also a special mahalo to those officers who represented our department and were able to attend this event in Washington, D.C.

Over the past month, I received many emails from neighborhood watch members sharing information regarding suspicious people, etc. NHW works so keep the tips rolling in.

The Hawai‘i Island Police Activity League, or HI-PAL, as it is better known, is planning some exciting events for island youth in the future. The mission is to keep youth out of trouble, provide a safe place and mentoring in order to develop their character and integrity. Contact us for upcoming events, suggestions or how you can volunteer.
