PUBLIC SAFETY SHERIFF DIVISION TEMPORARILY SUSPENDS EVICTION ACTIVITIES

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Public Safety Sheriff Division is suspending all eviction activities as part of the Department’s COVID-19 response efforts.

“In light of the Governor’s recent State of Emergency declaration, the Judiciary limiting court proceedings, and the rapidly evolving situation, we felt it was in the best interest of our community to suspend these actions,” said Public Safety Director Nolan Espinda.

The temporary hold on evictions is effective immediately.  This suspension will be reevaluated at a later date.
