DEFY Youth Application

DEFY Staff Mentor Application

The Drug Education for Youth (DEFY) Program is dual-phased and open for children ages 9-12.  The DEFY program provides children with access and examples of tools and techniques to resist drugs such as developing leadership skills, instilling positive social skills through participation in team-building, conflict resolution, and decision-making activities. 



Phase I consists of a non-residential or residential leadership training camp experience.  This first phase is structured to provide a focused classroom learning environment that will teach leadership skills, goal setting, and increase self-confidence.  Although the classroom is the focus, leadership camps are structured to provide a fun environment that focuses on quality training time while still providing a memorable experience.



Phase II is a 9-month mentoring program throughout the school year in which DEFY youth are consistently matched with an adult mentor team.  Mentoring events are built around a curriculum module that is structured to provide reinforcement of skills, techniques, and procedures learned in Phase I.  In addition, events are also structured to provide a showcase for the role models represented in each program by the DEFY adults.



The goal of recruitment is to generate a pool of applicants sufficient to provide the desired number of qualified participants.  A typical DEFY camp has roughly 20 youth participants usually making up 4 teams of 4-6 youths each.

All applications need to be printed out and returned in person to PMO Physical Security office located in building 1095 first deck. All Applications will be received and reviewed in chronological order of receipt.  Additional applicants will be informed and placed on a waiting list in the event of cancellations.  Parents and guardians will be notified upon acceptance into the DEFY program.  All accepted and waiting-list applicants should receive a copy of the Parent/Guardian Handbook.

House Check Welcome Letter

House Check Application

House checks help with protecting property and the early detection of burglary, vandalism, and other crimes.

The purpose of this program is to help with protecting property and the early detection of burglary, vandalism, and other crimes. Police Departments nationwide offer a similar program to their respected communities; the Honolulu Police Department also utilizes a House Check Program. Due to the unique makeup of our community here on MCBH residents frequently go on leave, deployment, etc. and their residence may be unoccupied for extended periods of time.

Property crimes are highly lucrative for burglars and thieves because most stolen property are not properly identified. This makes it easy to sell these stolen items. Recovered property that lacks personalization identification hampers efforts to locate the owners and return the property. It also hinders any prosecutorial efforts against the burglars and thieves.

Operation Identification offers personnel residing aboard MCBH, Camp Smith and Manana Housing the opportunity to check out an electronic engraver from the Crime Prevention Office at the Provost Marshal Office. The electronic engraver can be used to engrave any personnel property deemed valuable to the owner. When personnel check out an electronic engraver for participation in Operation Identification they will also be given educational crime prevention material regarding marking personal property and inventorying personal property.
