AFTER THE EVENT
Within 30 days following the event, the organization must submit a copy of the transportation invoice marked “paid.”
The invoice should be signed and dated by the organization’s contact person and mailed to the HPD’s Finance Division.
Failure to submit a copy of the paid invoice will jeopardize the organization’s ability to receive future funding.

On behalf of Chief Louis M. KEALOHA and the members of the Honolulu Police Department, have a safe and cheerful "Project Graduation."
