The Waimanalo site participated in the 2010 National Night Out Celebration where they were honored by the Honolulu Police Department (HPD).
Louis Kealoha, HPD Chief of Police and Florence Nakakuni, United States Attorney for the District of Hawaii recognized the center for their dedication in partnering with law enforcement to make their community a safer place.
The center partners with the Community Policing Team on many projects throughout the year.
The Maui site partnered with the County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) by playing victims in three different disaster scenarios (earthquake, tsunami, and hurricane). Students received valuable information on how to protect themselves, their families, their neighborhood, and their community in a mass causality incident or in a major disaster until professional emergency responders can arrive. Maui Police Chaplin Paul Kaneshiro was so impressed with the Job Corps students they invited them to participate in another exercise in October.
