  • Community Policing

DES increased the number of law enforcement patrols throughout USAG-HI by 30 percent, which will provide an enhanced presence of military police and DA civilian police within USAG-HI. Additionally, DES will soon increase the presence of bicycle patrols in housing areas.

DES will continue to concentrate on areas that statistically show the most crime. Please feel free to introduce yourself to patrols and get to know them. We look forward to improved interaction with community members and leaders.

Please assist DES with deterring crime by securing your personal property and vehicles, as 60 percent of the larcenies that occurred this reporting period involved property that was left unsecured and unattended. Help us keep our communities safe by reporting suspicious activities to the Schofield Barracks and Fort Shafter police stations.

Reporting suspicious activities enables our investigators to find leads and links to crimes that may be taking place on our installations.
