I have ordered that the United States flag and the Hawai‘i state flag be flown at half-staff at the Hawai‘i State Capitol and upon all state offices and agencies as well as the Hawai‘i National Guard in the State of Hawai‘i, immediately until sunset on Friday, Jan. 24.

This action is taken to honor Honolulu Police Department officers Tiffany Enriquez and Kaulike Kalama who were shot and killed in the line of duty on Jan. 19.

Flags will also be flown at half-mast from sunrise until sunset on the day of services for each of the fallen officers. Notification will be provided when information about the services is available.

These officers paid the ultimate price to ensure the safety of our community. As we honor their sacrifice, we grieve with their families.

BE COUNTED: Each year, the federal government distributes more than $675 billion to states and communities based on the U.S. Census Bureau data. The 2020 Census is our opportunity to be ALL IN for Hawaiʻi for the next decade. Every individual counted is money towards critical public services like hospitals and health care clinics, schools and education programs, roads and bridges, and emergency response for the next 10 years.

I am ALL IN for a better Hawaiʻi and am asking you to be ALL IN too! We must take responsibility and ensure we get the resources we deserve. Your participation is needed. Every individual NOT counted is a dollar loss for Hawaiʻi. Let us all be counted in the 2020 Census.

Census Day is April 1, 2020. By April 1, you will receive an invitation in the mail to participate in the 2020 Census. You’ll have three options for responding: online, by mail, or by phone. For more information, visit: census.hawaii.gov/census_2020/
