Default Are there State Prisons in Hawaii?

Are there state prisons in Hawaii? I never saw one when I was on vacation. Maybe this is a silly question but I gotta know. The inmates don't wear lais and have girls in grass skirts do dances in front of them do they? Are there beautiful pics of Hawaii on the walls? What are prisons in Hawaii like exactly?

It's really hard to imagine Hawaii as a place for prisons. Everything about those islands was a pleasant experience for me except seeing a homeless man in a wheelchair late at night.

Yes we do have a state prison in Hawaii, its called Halawa on the island of Oahu. No the false image of girls in grass skirts in not reality. Saldy Hawaii has high crime communities and drugs are a big issue here. If you didn't know where you were going you wouldn't see the prison it's up in the mountain a lil, you probably just saw the county facilitys.
