Welcome to the Hawaiʻi Police Department website

In an emergency, call 911; 
For non-emergencies, call (808) 935-3311.

Use 911 to report any serious medical problem, fire, life-threatening situation or crime in progress.

If your need is not an emergency, please call the non-emergency line at (808) 935-3311. The non-emergency calls go to the same Dispatch Center but priority is given to 911 emergency calls.

Text to 911

Text to 911 allows you to use your activated cell phone to contact the 911 center by text message instead of calling 911. Texting to 911 should only be done when you are unable to make a voice call.
