Police to host community meeting in Pahala May 21


The Hawaii Police Department will hold a community meeting from noon to 2 p.m. May 21 at the Naalehu Community Center.

The meeting will allow the public to meet the department’s command staff and discuss concerns with the police chief and commanders who oversee police operations in the Kaʻu District.

The Kaʻu event continues the district’s community meetings, which are rotated throughout the eight police districts on the Big Island. To aid police commanders in focusing on specific concerns, it is requested that participation be limited to persons who live or work in the Kaʻu District.

Those interested in participating but unable to attend may call Capt. Andrew Burian at 939-2520, stop by the Kaʻu police station in Naalehu or email concerns or comments to copsysop@hawaiipolice.com.
