“Taking Back the Streets!”

UPDATE:  This evening, April 10th, KHON2 News reported that the City, Mayor Hannemann and the Honolulu Police Department, have started “Operation Chinatown.”  They have “tripled the number of police officers” and they’re “taking back the streets!”

It’s not going to be easy, we know that.  We just need to keep our eyes open and share the responsibility of keeping our home a happy place.  Our job is to let them know when we see bad things happening.  Hey, it’s a Neighborhood Watch!

Anyway, write this number down, 768-6800.  This is the Chinatown Alert Hotline — if you see something going on, call and let them know!  (If it’s an emergency, call 911 like you always would.)

Let’s help the City take back the streets!  Store that number in your cell phone — I did! Mahalo to the Mayor and the Chief of Police for taking action!

    More cops is very important, good on Muffi. The key, however, is for the residents of an area to engage too.

    Quite right, Keahi! They seem to be doing just that. Let’s just hope they stick together and keep communication open and watch out for each other!

    I spoke to one of the florists late yesterday and they told me there are a lot more officers passing by their doorstep and they have not had any trouble in their area.

    Thank you, Keahi, for stopping by regularly and for sharing your thoughts!
