Hawaiʻi Island Police are continuing law enforcement efforts in the downtown area of Hilo, specifically targeting areas of concern raised by the community.



The projects address locations such as downtown Hilo, Hilo Bay Front, several of the county and state parks, Hilo Bay Front Soccer Field, Carvalho Park, and the Hilo Bay Front Canoe Landing.

Working in tandem with the Department of Land and Natural Resource, DOCARE officers, Hawaiʻi Police issued eight citations for offenses that include; violation of park hours, traffic-related offenses with vehicles parked in the vicinity, and one offender was cited for a drug offense by DOCARE officers.

Police also arrested 40-year-old Ronnell Derosa for open lewdness after he was observed urinating on Wainuenue Avenue by the sidewalk area.

We hope the police department will be continuing their efforts at the local bars on Hilo’s Bay Front and Kona Beach Bars and Hotels where pandering young women for prostitution will take president at some point. That sounds like a good arrest waiting to happen… Let’s See A Solid Effort…
