That's awesome!!

Excellent work, Operation Shine the Light!We recognize the amazing efforts of Hawaii #childprotection partners working each and every day to locate and safely recover endangered missing and abducted children. One such example is Operation Shine the Light, a multi-agency child recovery operation in Hawaii that works to locate, recover and provide immediate services to endangered missing children and youth reported as “runaways.”

Recent collaborative efforts of the State of Hawaii Department of the Attorney General, the Hawaii Department of Human Services, the Honolulu Police Department, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and the Susannah Wesley Community Center resulted in the safe location and recoveries of 11 children and youth between the ages of 15 and 19 across Oʻahu. Investigations are ongoing.
