    HPD is asking the public to be vigilant when attending any large upcoming events. Large events include Memorial Day gatherings such as the lantern floating at Ala Moana Beach Park, and the 50th State Fair at Aloha Stadium.

In light of the Manchester, England, concert bombing, the Honolulu Police Department is asking the public to be vigilant when attending any large upcoming events.

If anyone sees something suspicious, inform security personnel, a police officer if one is nearby, or call 911, the police chief urges.

“We want to reassure the public that although we have several events over the next several weeks, there is a security plan in place for all those events,” HPD Assistant Chief Alan Bluemke said Tuesday. “We’ll be prepared.”

Police will be working with state, federal and other city agencies and partners.

However, police would not provide details on whether they will be beefing up security at any of these events. Police will monitor these events and might adjust plans where they see fit.

Such large events include Memorial Day gatherings such as the lantern floating at Ala Moana Beach Park, and the 50th State Fair beginning Friday at Aloha Stadium.
