Hakea Prison

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.
