Halawa Correctional Facility Visiting Information:

Halawa Correctional Facility Additional information:

The Halawa Correctional Facility (HCF) is made up of two separate facilities: a special needs facility and a medium security facility. The special needs facility opened in 1962, as the City and County of Honolulu’s Halawa Jail, and transferred to the State of Hawaii in 1977. The special needs facility houses maximum and closed custody inmates, inmates with severe/chronic mental illness who cannot be placed in the general population and inmates who require protective custody.

The medium security facility opened in 1987, and is the newest and largest prison facility in the State of Hawaii.  The medium security facility houses male sentenced felons.

In order to mitigate overcrowding, there are about 1,900 male inmates from HCF that are housed in out-of-state contracted facilities in Arizona.

Among the programs offered at HCF are a broad range of education classes, substance abuse treatment and sex offender treatment services. In-facility workline positions, as well as work opportunities through Correctional Industries are available.


No time limit unless space availability is limited.

    Me and my mom will be visiting my brother this December. But I’m not sure how to do it, can we walk in and ask to see him? or is there anything? does the inmate have to tell them that someone will be visiting?
