KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) - The FBI has a new field office in Hawaii.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is being held Tuesday for the new building in the Honolulu suburb of Kapolei.
The building on a 10-acre site is now headquarters for all FBI operations in Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The 160,000-square foot facility features an annex for automotive and electronic repairs, a parking structure and a solar power system.
The FBI has said its previous location in a federal building near downtown Honolulu was too small to meet technological infrastructure requirements.
The new building will help the FBI handle expanding needs of criminal investigation and intelligence.
