About Hawaii Department of Public Safety

The Hawaii Department of Public Safety oversees the inmates in the following jails and prisons throughout the state of Hawaii:

The Hawaii Department of Public Safety uses VINELink to locate inmates. VINELink is the America’s Victim Notification Network. You can look up inmates and even get alerts (text messages, emails, and phone calls) as they go through the court system.

Unlike the state of Hawaii, the city and county jails keep their own records of inmates separate from the states. You will have to contact them, if you are looking for an inmate in one of those jails.
