‘Active Shooter’ presentation in Waimea on July 2

The Hawaii Police Department will offer an “active shooter” presentation from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 2, at the Waimea Community Center located at 65-1260 Kawaihae Rd. The presentation 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 Q-and-A segment.
