Mahalo for your question. That is a question that can be answered most accurately by our "local" Hawaii County Police Department. Their web site is http://www.hawaiipolice.com/ our county (Hawaii) website http://www.hawaiicounty.gov/ also has additional information you may find helpful.
What you may find useful in deciding in where/what it is like to live on our Island, is to work with an local agent in helping answer specific questions about not just this, but "what's it like to live in Mt View" and how is it different than the Puna area...they both are only about an half an hour's drive from each other, but two very distinct "areas" of our Island.
I would love to help answer any questions you may have about the Mountain View/Kurtistown area. You'll find my contact information below. I would be happy to provide a "local" perspective to help understand what our lovely Island has to offer....Galyn
