The Hawai‘i Police Activities League (HI-PAL) would like to congratulate all the winners and thank all of the participants in the first-ever Blue Light fishing tournament, which took place Wednesday, July 14, 2021, at Wailoa State Park in Hilo.

Participating students from Keaukaha, Kapiolani, and Kaumana elementary schools, as well as Hilo Intermediate School attended a summer school fishing class taught by HPD’s School Resource Officer and Community Police Officers. Students learned the importance of fishing and the basics of how to fish, with an emphasis on staying healthy and using this fun outdoor activity to stay out of trouble.

Hawai‘i Police Department wishes to thank officers from the Departments of Land and Natural Resources and the State of Hawaii Aquatics Division for their support in assisting with the tournament and providing the participants with numerous fishing and hunting educational materials and lessons. HPD also thanks S.  Tokunaga Store for providing fishing poles and reels for participants.
