In an effort to keep the public informed, Hawaii Paroling Authority (HPA) has set up a COVID-19 virus public information access hotline at 1 (808) 253-1642. to relay general information regarding the operational hours of the HPA, hearings information, and other public information related to this agency. The hotline is meant to relay information only. No messages can be recorded.
Earlier, the HPA decided to cancel hearings Effective Friday March 20, 2020, through close of business on Thursday, April 2, 2020, all hearings previously scheduled to take place during this time frame are being rescheduled to take place as soon as possible.
Out of an abundance of caution, the HPA has now also decided to cancel all hearing for the remainder of April 2020. Therefore, the hearings scheduled to take place beginning April 3, 2010 through April 28, 2020, are also canceled and will be scheduled.
All offenders previously tentatively granted release on parole will continue to be processed for release pursuant to the individual release requirements established by the parole board during their parole hearing.
For now, all HPA offices statewide will continue to be open daily (Monday – Friday) from 7:45am – 4:30pm. Modified procedures regarding public access to our offices are in place. Each office has signage posted informing visitors about the temporary restrictions, which are designed to ensure the health and safety of our staff and those that visit our offices. All regular telephone lines are operational, but due to very limited staffing, responses to inquiries will be delayed. Please call 1 (808) 253-1642 to receive recorded updates. We encourage everyone to take necessary precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones during this public health emergency. Check various public service announcements regarding the COVID-19 virus and the steps being taken and implemented by local, State, and Federal government. Thank you.
