Department of Public Safety Inmate Population Report

There are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the prisons or jails. 

PSD Population Report

From March 2 to May 29 there has been a substantial reduction in the jail population across the state. These reductions are due to the huge, up-front diversion efforts made by county police departments, PSD’s Intake Services Center Division and the State Judiciary.

More recent, additional reductions are due to the collaborative efforts of the state public defender’s office, county prosecutors, the Hawai‘i Supreme Court and the Supreme Court appointed Special Master, Judge Dan Foley. As the focus has shifted to the sentenced prison population, reports now include the prisons.

Note: The jail population decreases reflected for the time period in the graph above are inclusive of all reasons for release ordered by the courts. The prison population decreases reflected for the time period in the graph above include a combination of normal releases for time served, cases reviewed for parole approval in the normal course of business by the Hawaii Paroling Authority (HPA), and cases reviewed by HPA earlier than normal in consideration of the pandemic situation.
