Councilmembers award HPD officers
Honolulu Councilmember Stanley Chang today recognized The Honolulu Police Department's Waikiki Community Policing Team (WCPT) for their completion of the Kuhio Mini Park beautification project. Four HPD officers were responsible for the project they include Paul Navares, Tiare Saringan, John Demello, and Tony Kalahui.
The project started as a way to address the homeless and criminal activity in the park. The WCPT eventually collaborated with businesses in the area and Urban 808, and they decided to create an urban art mural. The project was completed in September. The WCPT is part of Honolulu Police Chief Louis M. Kealoha's vision of making Honolulu the safest place to live, work and play.
Also recognized today was the Ewa Weed and Seed for their leadership in improving the quality of life in the Ewa and Ewa Beach communities. Three HPD officers and an HPD sergeant are assigned to the Ewa Weed and Seed. These officers are heavily involved in the community. They collaborate with schools, assist in security watch and citizen patrols, participate in Neighborhood Board meetings, and investigate complaints.
Councilmembers Ron Menor and Kymberly Marcos Pine recognized the group.
