Safety & Security

The safety and security of both residents and visitors are always HTA’s top priorities.

Safety & Security

HTA funds safety and security initiatives vital to residents and visitors statewide. It is a commitment HTA is proud to uphold to help make Hawaii’s communities stronger.

One such program is the Visitor Assistance Program, an essential program that, in 2017, assisted over 3,300 visitors who required support to deal with a personal crisis or were victims of a crime.

Another important safety program HTA supports is the Junior Lifeguard Program, which is offered each summer. This innovative program partners with Hawaii lifeguards in the four island counties to teach more than 2,000 Hawaii teens about ocean safety and water safety rescue skills – knowledge they will carry with them for life and can share with others.

HTA also supports the State of Hawaii, Department of Health’s Advisory Committee on Drowning and Aquatic Injury Prevention. It is imperative that HTA collaborate with other departments and experts in the private sector on preventing these types of tragedies from occurring.
