The Hawaiʻi Police Department will make an “active shooter” presentation in Nāʻālehu on Wednesday, July 6.

The presentation will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Nāʻālehu Community Center.

It is designed to help individuals increase their survivability should they encounter an active shooter or other type of active violent incident.

Police will provide information on previous incidents of mass violence, recent events, best practices for those caught in such situations, law enforcement’s response, and how to work together as a community toward prevention. They will also provide additional resources for participants so they can continue their education on this topic, followed by a question-and answer segment.
