Pohakuloa Gun Range

Sheriff Firearm Range — The Big Island Sheriffs have a new option for firearms training, thanks to an agreement with the U.S. Army Garrison Pohakuloa.

Lieutenant Colonel Eric Shwedo, Commander of the U.S. Army Garrison Pohakuloa, Command Sergeant Major Alan Higgs, Public Safety Director Ted Sakai and Lieutenant Pat Kawai with the Sheriff Division, gathered at the U.S. Army Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) for a signing ceremony and to announce the new partnership.

PTA’s ranges are primarily used for military combat readiness. In an effort to develop stronger partnerships with state and county law enforcement, PTA offered the use of their range to state Sheriffs as well as county police.
