Pahoa Police Station opens on Big Island on Monday

The Big Island’s new Pahoa Police Station, which will temporarily serve as the Puna district’s main station, will be opened for operations Monday.

The new station will offer more services, including permit applications and registration of firearms, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Appointments required; call 965-2716.

The new station is larger and more modern than Keaau police station, which is too small to keep up with the district’s needs, the department said. Puna is the third-busiest police district on the Big Island, after South Hilo and Kona.

Located just north of Pahoa town on Highway 130, the new station will be open to the public weekdays from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except holidays and furlough days.

The station will continue to offer driver’s license renewals and vehicle registration.

The Keaau facility will be converted to a substation.

The Hawaii County Police Department reminds the public to call 911 for emergencies and 935-3311 for non-emergencies.
