If you have ever traveled on Komo Mai Drive near Children's House, heading  towards or from Pacific Palisades, you may have been intimidated by drivers traveling at excessive speeds with no regard for public safety.

"Because of a concern of speeding that the department got regarding speeding in this area, we got together to partnership with Pearl City High School students and some community members to come out and let everybody know," said Officer Kathleen Capellas from the Pearl City Police Station – Community Policing Team.

Pearl City has an increasing problem with regard to speeding throughout our community. From one end to the other,  the problem exists 24/7.

The efforts put forth by the Pearl City Police Station-Community Policing Team to partner with the community represents HPD's dedication to making our neighborhoods safe to travel through for all motorists and pedestrian traffic.

Community volunteers are the heart and soul of what makes Pearl City a great community to live in. Our student volunteers represent our future and will be responsible for the growth and well being of the community down the road.

It's important that Monday's safe driving sign waving as well as future outings will gain momentum and support from the community towards the ultimate goal of making PC Safe Streets a reality.
