This facility has closed, as of 11-20-09. The incarcerated population of approximately one hundred twenty at the Kulani correctional facility was transferred to the Halawa correctional facility.
There are meetings to plan to reopen this facility and hopefully more will be known at the end of 2011. http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/sessio...B1358_HD2_.HTM

The Kulani Correctional Facility (KCF) is a 160-bed minimum-security prison that incorporates vocational training and specialized programming for male inmates nearing the end of their sentence. Situated on 20 acres, it opened in 1946 as a work camp.
Kulani is the primary location for the department's sex offender treatment program. Past programs at KCF initially focused on assigning inmates agricultural work, specifically cultivating fruits and vegetables. Planting and cutting koa forests were also at one time a large part of the facility's programs.
Over the years, Kulani's programs have evolved with the changing technological needs and the job market. Today's worklines stress mechanical repair and maintenance, construction, heavy equipment operation and computer work.
As of 12/02/06 all info is the same. If you see an error or think something needs to be added please PM any Hawaii Forum Moderator and we will fix/add it. Thanks!
