In recognition of a nationwide anti-crime event called “National Night Out,” the Hawaiʻi Police Department is offering National Night Out activity sheets for keiki designed to educate them about internet safety by way of fun, interactive games and puzzles.

The activity sheets are available on the Police Department’s website:

National Night Out is a yearlong community-building campaign designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and send a message to criminals to let them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. It culminates with events held on the first Tuesday of August.

In its simplest form, citizens often celebrate National Night Out by turning on their outside lights and holding front porch vigils. Many communities expand on that by celebrating with a variety of special community-wide and neighborhood events, such as block parties, parades, safety fairs and youth events.

Hawaiʻi Police Chief Harry Kubojiri says National Night Out is a good time to remind children about safety tips. “One of the methods for doing that is by encouraging them to use the National Night Out activity sheets,” the chief said. “These interactive activity sheets teach keiki internet safety tips in a way that is fun and easy to understand.”
