The Hawaii Department of Public Safety revealed Monday an initial list of 11 sites identified for the redevelopment of the Oahu Community Correctional Center.
In a press release, the PSD said that “OCCC is an aged and obsolete facility that does not meet the current needs of inmates, visitors, volunteers, staff and the general public. The proposed new OCCC will modernize the jail by taking advantage of new cost-savings technologies and improve correctional services and safety for both inmates and staff.”
The state sought out the Oahu real estate community, property owners with large land holdings and state and federal agencies in its search for possible sites. From these sources, 11 sites, clustered within the Kalihi, Aiea, Kalaeloa and Mililani areas, have been identified for initial consideration.
The potential sites include the current OCCC location in Kalihi, the Halawa Correctional Facility and Animal Quarantine Facility in Aiea, the Barbers Point Riding Club in Kalaeloa, and a lot in the Mililani Technology Park.
