Nanawale Neighborhood Watch
Chairperson: Madie Greene
This committee is comprised of a group of neighborhood volunteers that work with our Community Police Officer (CPO) from the Pahoa Police Station to patrol areas in marked vehicles for suspicious activity, locate abandoned vehicles in our neighborhood, conduct wellness checks and other related services. At the homeowner’s request, The Neighborhood Watch volunteers will conduct drive-by inspections for homeowners on vacation or who are going off-island for brief periods of time. The program is an observe-and-report group only and does not provide security services or long-term drive-by services. The group holds no liability for any criminal activity which may occur during a homeowner's absence. This active group meets monthly when able to based on current CDC, State and County Covid-19 restrictions.
Neighborhood Watch (NW) Contact Process
We have created the following email address:
for all residents of Nanawale Estates to report issues ranging from observing potential criminal activity, squatters, unpermitted homes, nuisance animals, etc. This is for non-emergency issues only. The email will be monitored daily and we will attempt to answer emails as soon as possible. We are log each complaint we receive and will take appropriate action as necessary.
Anyone having an emergency or witnessing violent criminal activities should contact 911, not the NCA or NW. The NCA cannot and will not be held liable for emergency issues reported to them instead of to the appropriate authorities.
Please pass this info along to your neighbors and let them know it is the fastest and most efficient way to contact the NCA and the NW with any non-emergency issues they come across.
