Hawaii State prisons[edit]

Hawaii Department of Public Safety jails[edit]

The Hawaii Department of Public Safety also operates the jails in the state. There are no county jails in Hawaii.

Mainland facilities[edit]

As of 2016 one correctional facility on the mainland is contracted to house Hawaii's prisoners: the Saguaro Correctional Center in Eloy, Arizona, operated by Corrections Corporation of America.

Previously, female prisoners were at Otter Creek Correctional Center in Kentucky, but they were returned to Hawaii in 2009 after a sexual scandal.[3] Hawaii also ended its contract with CCA to house male inmates at its Red Rock Correctional Center in 2014.
