    Special Counsel Charles Koala felt that the Prime Minister needed to be briefed of the case because it had implications for Hawaii's National Security. The Prime Minister called for the National Security team to be briefed. This was the Secretaries of Defense, State, Treasury, Director of the Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Agency, Office of the Commissioner of the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Chief of Staff of the Army, Chief of Naval Operations, Attorney General, National Security Advisor and The Director of the Royal Hawaiian Secret Service. The Special Counsel briefed everyone and then answered questions. He thanked him for his alerting him to a possible problem. Then he asked everyone to prepare for enhanced security.
    The Prime Minister then briefed the King and had a meeting with the leader of the Loyal Opposition.
    The Prime Minister then requested some 2 million dollars in additional spending for the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary and proposed that the Police force be given additional funding and personnel to meet the threat.

    The Prime Minister in a private Meeting with the Commissioner of the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary, Director of the Royal Hawaiian Secret Service and the Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Agency issued a order that the group work together to once and for all end the threat to the Kingdom. He believed that they had enough legal authority to do it but would be willing to go to the House and Senate to push through legislation if needed. The King and Queen were scheduled to visit Tahiti and had an enhanced Security detail.
    It would be reinforced by members of the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary/French Polynesian branch

    The Prime Minister was looking at a major increase in the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary throughout the kingdom. There were currently a little over 19,000 police officers spread through out the Kingdom of which a little over 10,000 were in Hawaii proper.
    The proposal was to increase the force to 39,000.While that was More than doubling the size of the Force the Commissioner was recommending an even larger increase to 54,000 and even that might be too low in view of the threats to the public safety.
    As a result the Prime Minister was recommending to the House of Representatives that the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary go through a build up so that there would be enough properly trained Constables through out the Kingdom. That meant 3 classes of trainees a year each starting out with 1,500. It was estimated that 3,000 of the 4,500 would pass the training and Probation and in 10years the force would total 49,000.

    May 1901 The King and Queen arrived In Tahiti by airship and proceeded on a tour of the Island inspecting improvements. Special Agent Tommy O'Brien of the Royal Hawaiian Secret Service noticed two people that were acting strange he alerted Sgt George Laopa
    of the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary and he started to remove the King and Queen from the area when a shot rang out. Tommy O'Brien saw the shooter and fired. More shots were heard and the crowd began to panic. one agent was wounded protecting the Queen and two officers of the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary/Tahiti were killed. The King and Sgt Laopa were both grzed by bullets but the Sgt was able to hit another would be assassin. Seaman TomaraRHN was armed with a rifle and he shot and Killed a sniper on the roof of a building. Soon there were at least 70 police, military and security personnel in the area.
    Sgt Tomara notified Headquaters and the Prime Minister was notified within 15 minutes of the situtation.

    The Prime Minister Ordered the Naval Air Service to evacuate the King and Queen from Tahiti. He then Called for an emergency meeting of the House to take up Special Legislation. The National Security Act of 1901 would see a Massive increase in the recruitment and training of the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary. Under the Act up to 6,000 Police candidates would be recruited each year. The Commissioner of Police estimated that perhaps 5,000 would pass the training and probation period. The Force would increase in size from 19,000 to 24,000 almost immediately as part time officers and reservist were activated. By the end of the year the force would increase to 29,000 and the increase would continue for 10 years so that by 1911 the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary would grow to 74,000. The Royal Hawaiian Secret Service would increase from 1,000 agents to 5,000 agents over the next 5 years. Penalty for an attempt on the Royal family would be death. Attempts on the life of the Prime Minister would be death.

    The National Security Act of 1901 was passed with overwhelming support in both legislative bodies. The Leader of the Hawaiian Social Democratic Party voted for the Bill in the House. He was joined by two other members but the majority of his party in the house voted no.

    The Prime Minister met with the Special Counsel, Attorney General, Director of the Royal Hawaiian Secret Service,Director of the Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Agency, Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Prime Minister listen to everyone and then delivered an order. Enough is enough I want this to come to an end. There is to be no more attacks on the Monarchy or on officials of this government. Do whatever it takes to eliminate the problem. I have spoken to our aliies and all have agreed to work with us on eliminating the threat.
    The Anarchist threat was becoming a real problem. The US Secret Service had prevented an assassination plot against the President of the United States. In Austria the Crown Prince had been wounded in an attack and Archduke Franz Ferrand had been rushed to the hospital with his wife after being shot.

    The Royal Hawaiian Constabulary together with the Royal Hawaiian Secret Service and the Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Agency began working full time on what was regarded as a terrorist threat. Pooling Intelligence the CID and the Agents of the RHSS were able to make a series of arrest around the kingdom. With a warrant signed by a Judge agents to the Secret Serce carried out a search on a member of the Legislative bodies storage facility and found bomb making material as a result the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary arrest the member.

    As the Security service in Hawaii began to grow the threat to the nation began to disappear. At the same time William Kamehameha began a series of social and legal reforms which he hope would improve conditions . He also announced that he would run for re-election.

    The Hawaiian Government in co-ordination with other power saw a decline in the threat from Anarchist and Marxist by 1903. The Prime Minister continued to support the expansion of both the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary and the Royal Hawaiian Secret Service. Trials had been held convicting a lot of defendants on serious charges. William Kamehameha traveled to the United States to meet with President Theodore Roosevelt on the island of Catalina and he would then continue to Europe meeting with the French Premier, Austrian Chancellor and Emperor, German Kaiser and Chancellor, the Dutch and Belgian heads of Government. He would then travel to London and meet with the British Prime Minister who was inspecting the reconstruction of the British Isles. Then he would travel to Ireland and meet with the King and Prime Minister. He would then fly to Madrid to meet with the Spanish Government and then he would conclude with a visit to Portugal meeting with the Prime Minister of that country and the Brazilian Prime Minister and Crown Prince.

    William was pleased with the progress that Hawaii and its allies had made in battling the threat to society. Much as he would like to relax and ease things he knew that there would be no going back. The Royal Hawaiian Constabulary was now nearly 25,000 officers strong and the build up would continue. Hawaii had now overhauled its entire custom and passport control.
    He would visit with Hawaii's Pacific allies and that meant visits to Australia, Netherlands East Indies, New Zealand, Empire of the Rising Sun and a first visit to the Republic of China.

    Arrangements to visit the Republic of China by the Hawaiian Prime Minister had been made in advance with co-operation between the two countries Security services. It marked the first offical visit to the Republic by an Hawaiian Prime Minister. It was also a confidence builder in that the Republic of China had come a long way. Talks were held between the President of the Republic of China and the Prime Minister on a variety of topics. They included border issues with the Empire of the Rising Sun, Trade with Hawaii etc.
