Hakea Prison manages male prisoners who have been remanded in custody while waiting to appear in court or those who have just been sentenced.
Newly-sentenced prisoners are assessed at Hakea Prison before being placed at other WA prisons.
A 15-bed crisis-care facility at Hakea serves the needs of a small group of acute and, at times, chronic 'at risk' offenders who need specialised treatment and support interventions.
Hakea has a self-care block designed mainly for long-term prisoners. It allows selected prisoners to cook and clean for themselves.
Hakea's focus is on rehabilitation and employs prisoners in a number of areas including laundry, carpentry, concreting and other domestic duties.
Hakea is also temporarily housing male juvenile detainees in a separate, secure area while repair works are carried out to Banksia Hill Detention Centre.
