Kulani re-opens today

By 67AM KPUA News

The Big Islands Kulani Correctional Facility re-opens today, with the first group of 60 minimum security inmates set to arrive later this week.

Kulani was closed in 2009 in response to the states fiscal crisis, resulting in the lay-off of 90 employees and the re-location of 160 inmates. The facility, located 20 miles southwest of Hilo had been used until recently by the Hawaii National Guards Youth Challenge Academy, which is now housed at the Keaukaha Military Reservation.

Kulani will eventually house an inmate population of 200. The re-opened prison will employ 76 people.
