Attorney General 2019-69 Celebrate Safe Communities 2019

Posted on Oct 9, 2019 in Executive Orders

HONOLULU – The Department of the Attorney General, U.S. Attorney’s Office – District of Hawaii, Weed and Seed Hawaii, Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs – Office of the Securities Commissioner, and Honolulu Police Department, along with other community partners are coordinating the Celebrate Safe Communities Day on Saturday, October 12, 2019, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Pearlridge Center, Wai Makai (formerly Downtown) Mall.  This is a free event for the entire community.

This partnership was formed so these federal, state, and county agencies and other service providers could better work together to keep communities safe from crime, fraud, and disasters.

“Since 2012, the partnership has coordinated this event to help educate our community on all the different ways to keep safe,” said Attorney General Clare E. Connors.  “Whether it is online safety, fraud prevention, disaster preparedness, or substance abuse prevention, the partnership wants to make sure we provide helpful and useful information to as many families as possible.”

There will be over 40 interactive booths and displays at the Wai Makai Mall and First Floor levels; along with static displays in the TJ Maxx parking lot.  Free reusable Celebrate Safe Communities bags will be distributed on a first come first serve basis while supplies last.

Some of our booths and displays include: U.S. Attorney’s Victim Services Office, Honolulu Fire Department’s fire truck, Hawaii Army National Guard’s climbing wall, HPD and Department of Public Safety canine unit, Department of Defense Take the Cybersafety Quiz, Department of the Attorney General bean bag toss, Hickam Federal Credit Union’s Keiki ID, HPD’s Solo Bike Unit and Major Events Division, along with other service providers whose focus areas are on substance abuse prevention, youth services, disaster preparedness, anti-bullying, and Senior Medicare.

There will also be an appearance by McGruff, the Take a Bite Out of Crime Dog from 9:45-10:45 a.m.
