The Ho‘okala (to free or release) Attendant Care Program is a diversion program implemented in 1993 to ensure that juveniles are not secured inappropriately in police lock-ups.
The program was created to maintain compliance with the Jail Removal and Sight and Sound Mandates of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974. It also provides 24-hour accessibility to police for youth being released from their custody.
Status offenders and non-violent minor law violators, age 10 through 17, who have been arrested. Police must contact Hale Kipa at 808.754.9858 and a staff member will meet the officer at the Hale Kipa Attendant Care Office within 1 hour.
