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. “We are delighted to participate again in this event, which has helped educate our community about important safety issues since 2012,” said United States Attorney Clare E. Connors. “Everyone is a potential target and to keep safe, it is critical to know about threats such as online scams, fraud prevention, disaster preparedness, and substance abuse prevention. This partnership helps our different agencies provide as much useful information to as many families as possible.”

Some of the vendors and static displays include those from the United States Attorney’s Office, Honolulu Police Department, Honolulu Fire Department, Hawaii Army National Guard, Department of Public Safety canine unit, Hickam Federal Credit Union’s Keiki ID, Walk Wise Hawaiʻi, Aloha Medical Mission and many other excellent resources vendors.
