Media Release

The Hawaiʻi Police Department is informing the public of suspicious behavior, involving persons impersonating a county employee from the tax office.

It was reported that a female party in a white unmarked vehicle explained that she was a contract hire for the county tax office, checking on properties for tax purposes.  When she was asked to produce identification, this female party could not produce a County of Hawaii employee identification card.

The Hawaiʻi Police Department wants residents to know that all field work done by Real Property Tax Office personnel have photo identification and business cards and all field work is done in county vehicles with county seals visible on the side.

Citizens should not give personal information without asking for proper identification when in these situations.

Please report suspicious behavior to the police non-emergency number at 935-3311.
