Oahu's 911 system restored

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

[Update 9 p.m.]

Oahu's 911 system has been restored. No further issues have been reported on other islands. 

[Original Story:]

The Honolulu Police Department says it is experiencing technical issues with the 911 System.

HPD asks that only emergency calls be made to 911. "If you cannot connect with 911, call 529-3111."

Non-emergency calls should be directed to the police station that is nearest to you. The stations and phone numbers are:

  • Chinatown Substation 808-723-3309
  • Wahiawa Station 808-723-8742
  • Pearl City Station 808-723-8800
  • Kaneohe Station 808-723-8640
  • Kalihi Station 808-723-8208
  • Waikiki Station 808-723-8507
  • Kapolei Station 808-723-8400

HPD is working to restore full service.  

Meanwhile on Kauai the police dispatch non-emergency line, 241-1711, is also down.

The line went down around 2 p.m. due to a telecommunication issue. "Crews are actively working to repair this line, but a timeline of the repair is not yet available."

The 911 emergency line is working. If you have an emergency or must speak to a Police Dispatcher, call 911. If you are looking for general information or assistance, please instead call the Mayor's Office at 241-4900.
