HAWAII Prison & Criminal Justice DiscussionsTopics and conversations dealing with the State of Hawaii - Department of Corrections, Criminal Justice System, Prisoner & Family Support, News & Information, etc.
The Hawaii Community Correctional Center (HCCC) is a 226-bed facility located on two sites. The primary facility is situated on three acres in downtown Hilo. Hale Nani, the facility's community reintegration program, is located five miles away in Panaewa.
In addition to its jail functions, HCCC provides reintegration programming and a work release program at Hale Nani for sentenced inmates who will be released on the island of Hawaii. HCCC also contracts with the Big Island Substance Abuse Council for a transitional community residential program in Hilo for female offenders.
Work opportunities are available through in-facility worklines and Correctional Industries. Inmates are also able to participate in community service worklines for county, state and not-for-profit organizations.
