Kulani welcomes first group of inmates

By 67AM KPUA News

HILO The first group of 21 inmates were transported up to Kulani Correctional Facility Monday morning. The facility was closed in 2009, in response to a budget shortfall, but re-opened on July 1.

There are currently 56 staff working at the facility. Sixteen new ACOs started Basic Corrections Training on June 30 and will begin their jobs at Kulani upon graduation in August, while 19 more positions are in various stages of recruitment. Kulani will house a total of 200 low-risk inmates, who will return in phases over the next five months.
