Hawaii has various public access sites for individuals to visit and request name-based searches, or name-based searches can be performed online through eCrim. The fee is $15 per name. If HCJDC staff perform the search, the fee is $20 per name. You may also request a fingerprint search, which is more reliable and costs $20.

Access To Hawaii Criminal Records:

Hawaii considers all arrests that result in convictions with a guilty plea to be public information. Hawaii criminal records considered protected include juvenile records and arrest records that are pending or resulted in non-convictions. Only approved employers and law enforcement agencies may view complete criminal histories, except for individuals requesting their own Hawaii criminal records.

How To Lookup Inmate & Incarceration Records In Hawaii

Hawaii Department of Public Safety

About This Office:

Hawaii’s Department of Safety (PSD) is responsible for the Corrections Division of Hawaii. The PSD oversees Corrections Programs Services for inmates, Health Care Division for inmates, Offender Management Office and Comprehensive Offender Reentry Plan to help inmates adjust to a crime-free life after release.

Inmate Records At This Office:

The public may perform Hawaii inmate lookup through SAVIN (Hawaii Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification) system, which is maintained by VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday). SAVIN is possible because of a grant from the US Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance. Victims may register with SAVIN to receive notification of any changes in status for a particular inmate, but the public may search also using full name, physical identifiers or ID number to receive records.

Access To Hawaii Inmate Records:

PSD offers the public access to important inmate records that helps both family and friends of inmates, as well as crime victims keep track of offenders. Inmate records through PSD include inmate status, location, release date (if applicable), type of sentence, and a photo.
