DLNRTip App upgrade increases reporting capabilities

By Staff | Jul 23, 2020

HONOLULU – Hawaii’s official application for reporting natural resource violations is receiving a major update. The DLNRTip App now includes ?new features that allow users to choose an island when submitting a tip. This sends the tip directly to the appropriate DLNR Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE) branch.

Another upgrade is the “Use My Location” button, which more accurately pinpoints a user’s location.

DOCARE Chief Jason Redulla said, “It is important to use as much detail when describing and reporting a suspected natural or cultural resource violation. We ask users to be sure to include the island where the violation is occurring. Since its introduction several years ago, the application has been valuable in helping people immediately report violations, which allows us to dispatch DOCARE officers quickly to a scene.”

Download the free DLNRTip App from the Apple App Store for iPhones or Google Play Store for Android devices.
