The Choice Mentorship Program was the brainchild of Officer Emily Kibby of the Maui Police Department's Kihei District. Officer Kibby, under the guidance of her commander, Captain Tivoli Faaumu, submitted the grant application through the U.S. Department of Attorney General.
This program is designed to continue the Maui Police Department's efforts of community involvement and being role models for at-risk youth.
The Choice Mentorship Program is funded in part through a Project Safe Neighborhood grant from the U.S. Department of the Attorney General.
