Media Release (update)
The Hawaiʻi Police Department will make an “active shooter” presentation at an evening meeting in Waimea next week.
The meeting will take place 5-6:30 p.m. on Wednesday (July 2) at the Waimea Community Center located at 65-1260 Kawaihae Road.
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.
Chief Harry Kubojiri encourages the public to attend. “We hope no tragedy like this ever happens in our community,” he said, “but we want our citizens to know how to best protect themselves if it ever does.”
