The Keiki Identification Program is designed to
provide identification cards for children at
preschool and elementary-school ages. Participation
in the program shall be limited as outlined herein.
The Community Affairs Division (CAD) coordinates
the Keiki Identification Program. This includes the following:
A. Reviewing all requests for assistance in
the production of keiki identification cards and
all designs for cards used in the program;
B. Reviewing all offers of program support
from outside sources; and
C. Coordinating training for departmental
personnel in the issuance of cards.
CHILDREN PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM
In general, only children between the ages of
3 and 12 are eligible to participate in the
program. Requests for exceptions may be directed
to the commander of the CAD.
POLICE PERSONNEL PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM
A. Officers who have had prior training in the
issuance of cards may be used in all districts to
train officers who have not had such training.
B. Officers who are assigned to participate in
program activities shall participate in uniform.
Other individuals and agencies may participate
in the program (e.g., by providing cards or
other forms of support for the production of
cards or the staging of events). However,
such participation shall be subject to the
need for support and limitations such as those listed below.
A. Keiki identification cards must meet the
criteria specified by the Honolulu Ethics
Commission and the Chief of Police for such cards.
1. For example, the Ethics Commission requires
that the names and logos of the Honolulu Police
Department and private entities be of equal size when used on cards.
2. All card designs must be approved by the
commander of the CAD or a designee before the cards
are produced and used in the program.
B. All other offers of support for the program
must be reviewed and approved by the commander of
the CAD or a designee before being accepted.
C. Keiki Identification Program events must
not be organized or conducted in such a way as to
promote the interests of one or more participants
over the interests of others.
For example, events should be held in public parks,
schools, and community areas or in private areas,
such as parking lots, that are open to the public
and are not identified with a specific private entity.
Banners, brochures, photographs, and other promotional
materials should give equal prominence to the names
of all event participants (see the Ethics Commission
requirement in section IV A 1 above) and so forth.
