Media Release

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. 

In Hawai’i County we should all be proud and celebrate the work we do to make our community a better place.  This is especially true in the trying times of 2020.  The Hawai’i Police Department reminds people to be careful over the Labor Day weekend and take care of your friends and family.

Follow the health and safety guidelines set by our leaders.  We also ask you to not drive after consuming any substance that could impair your ability to operate a motor vehicle safely.  Officers will be conducting DUI Saturation Patrols in several areas island wide.  They will be searching for those drivers who are impaired and will enforce the laws strictly.  The goal is to prevent drivers from injuring or killing themselves or others. 

Help us keep Labor Day a safe holiday this weekend. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
