Hilo Community Policing Message

This month was busy as usual for Hilo Community Policing.


Some of you might have noticed that the Mo‘oheau Bandstand and bus terminal looks a lot better. A group partnership was done to address this area and continued effort, by everyone, will ensure that these locations remain in its current condition. A “BIG” ma-halo to all those involved in the beautification efforts.

There have been reports of several other areas of concern and these will be addressed as well.

Some of you might have noticed the speed board setup at several locations throughout Hilo. We are in the process of addressing your traffic concerns.

We continue to receive many emails from Neighborhood Watch members sharing information regarding suspicious people etc. NHW works, so keep the tips rolling in.

Reminder to those with “click-to-enter” systems. County emergency responders recently changed radio systems, and your “click-to-enter” should be checked to make sure it works properly.


HI-PAL held a youth boxing event in June at the Panaewa Gym and it was a great success. Over 500 people attended and it was a great time for all.

The Hawai‘i Island Police Activity League, or HI-PAL, as it is better known, will be 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.

School is out of session, so please be mindful of our keiki as they are out and about more during this time.

Drive with ALOHA and enjoy the summer.
