Hawaii Inmate Records

Inmate records are documents that contain information about offenders in jails and prisons throughout Hawaii. These documents are available to interested persons per the Hawaii Uniform Information Practices Act unless subject to restrictions under the law. Persons who inspect or obtain Hawaii inmate records can expect to see the offender’s name, age, birth date, charges, and term of incarceration. Other information contained in the records may include the inmate’s DOC numbers, bail/bond amounts, sentences, and upcoming court or release dates.

Inmate records are considered public in the United States and therefore are made available by both traditional governmental agencies as well as third-party websites and organizations. Third-party websites may offer an easier search, as these services do not face geographical limitations. However, because third-party sites are not government-sponsored, the information obtained through them may vary from official channels. To find inmate records using third-party aggregate sites, requesting parties must provide:

  • The location of the sought-after record, including state, county, and city where the inmate resides.
  • The name of the person listed in the record, unless it is a juvenile.

How Do I Send Money to an Inmate in Hawaii Prisons or Jails?

Only persons approved on the inmate’s visiting list may send money to the inmate. All payments are made by cashier’s checks only and addressed to the correctional facility in which the inmates are being housed, with the inmate’s first and last name printed at the bottom. Each facility puts a limit on the amount that may be sent to an inmate, and some have a timeframe within which money may be deposited. Sends with concerns regarding money sent must talk inform the inmate directly and not the facility’s management. Suppose the inmate cannot resolve these concerns. Then, the sender may send a letter to the facility.

How Do I Visit Inmates in Hawaii Prisons?

First, an intending visitor must use the Hawaii prison lookup tool to confirm that the incarcerated person is in the said facility. Then, the visitor must apply for approval — special visitors such as government officials, clergy, and other special persons granted prior approval to visit by the warden do not need to apply for approval.

Meanwhile, visitors who must apply for approval must complete a prison visit application form as well as a notice of consent to search form provided on the official page of the corrections facility they would like to visit or that of the Hawaii Public Safety Department.

The application, once approved, allows an inmate to maintain not more than 12 inmates on their visitation list. It is important for inmates and their visitors to familiarize themselves with the rules and regulations of the facility on visitation and abide by them, including the dress code during visits. All persons 13 years and older visiting an inmate must provide a valid photo ID such as a driver’s license or any acceptable, government-issued ID. For information on visitation rules, application procedure, visiting schedules, and related issues, the potential visitor may dial the correction facilities’ visiting hotlines

How to Perform a Hawaii Prison Inmate Search

Each correctional facility under the Hawaii Public Safety Corrections Division maintains its own jail roster. Anyone can contact any of the facilities to perform a free inmate search by name. The department also lets the public perform a Hawaii prison inmate search via the Hawaii SAVIN platform. To use this platform:

  1. Visit the VINELink website
  2. Select the state of Hawaii as the state of interest and select, find an offender
  3. Provide the first and last name of the inmate of interest and the offender ID number if available.

Users are advised to provide as much accurate information as possible to ensure that the correct inmate’s information is pulled up. A successful inmate lookup will provide the following information about an inmate:

  • Name
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Race
  • ID number
  • Custody detail
  • Custody status
  • Reporting Agency

In addition, the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Centre eCrim Justice Data Center provides online access to information and other records on persons convicted in Hawaii. To use this service, an inquirer must first sign up and complete the signup. It is advisable to provide as much information as possible to avoid repeating a search. Each search is $5 and $ 10 for a certified report. It is also advisable to have the information needed handy, such as the date of birth, first and last name of the persons of interest, because the system automatically logs the inquirer out and clears all the search items after 30minutes of inactivity.

The Difference between Hawaii State Prisons and County Jails

Hawaii's state prisons and county jails are operated by the Hawaii Department of Public Safety. The department is responsible for the custody and care of all inmates in the state prison system.

The Hawaii state prison system consists of four facilities: the Halawa Correctional Facility, the Kauai Community Correctional Center, the Maui Community Correctional Center, and the Women's Community Correctional Center. The Halawa Correctional Facility is the largest prison in the state and houses male inmates. The Kauai Community Correctional Center is a medium-security facility that houses both male and female inmates. The Maui Community Correctional Center is a minimum-security facility that houses male inmates. The Women's Community Correctional Center is a minimum-security facility specializing in providing female inmates rehabilitative services.

The county sheriff's office operates Hawaii's county jails. Each county has its jail facility. The Honolulu Police Department also operates a city jail separate from the county jails.

Inmates in Hawaii state prisons and county jails are provided with medical and mental health care, education and vocational training, and substance abuse treatment. Inmates are also offered opportunities to participate in work programs and religious services.

How Do I Find Out an Inmate Release Date?

Interested persons may contact the administrative office at the facility where the individual is incarcerated to inquire about the individual’s release date. Alternatively, the searcher may perform a name-based inmate lookup on the Hawaii SAVIN platform. This search will provide the inmate’s parole status and release date.
