Hawaiʻi Police Department
North Kohala Patrol
Captain Albert Cortez
North Kohala Police would like to remind the public that dogs, whether loose or on a leash are not allowed in any County Beach Parks under Section 4-29 of the Hawaiʻi County Code.
Due to a recent increase of complaints from the public as well as caretakers of Keōkea Beach Park that dog owners are allowing their dogs to remain within the park. North Kohala Patrol officers will be increasing enforcement and citing any violators in the area which could result in a fine and possible court appearance.
If there are any further concerns or complaints please feel free to contact Community Police Officer John Kahalioumi at 889-6540.
