The mission of the Pearl Harbor Brig is two-fold; first, to provide safe, legal, secure, and professional confinement of prisoners for all branches of service in Hawaii; and secondly, to provide a comprehensive corrections program of evaluation, work, training, and opportunities for self-improvement. The goal of brig programs is to better prepare confined personnel for return to duty, or to the civilian community, as productive, offense-free individuals when released from the brig.
All visitors will wear clothing and footwear that are in good taste and in accordance with military requirements for appropriate civilian attire. The following civilian attire is considered inappropriate for visitation:
Parking spaces are available to visitors on the left side of the facility. At no time will a visitor park in the spaces allotted to Staff Members.
Confining commands must visit personnel still officially assigned to them at least once a week. The official command visitor must be an E-6 or senior, in proper military uniform of the day, and possess a valid military I.D. Inquiries regarding visitation may be directed to the Brig Liaisons. Special command visits outside of the above hours may be authorized on a case by case basis.
- Clothing in poor repair (no holes or tears). No sweat suits/PT gear.

- Shirts displaying midriff/undergarments/obscenities/pornography/drugs/alcohol.
- Undershirts as an outer garment/tank tops/see-through articles of any kind.
Those commands failing to visit their confined member(s) will initially be notified by phone. Subsequent failures to visit will result in letters being sent to the Chain-of-Command.
All items brought to prisoners during visitation must be approved by the Brig Duty Officer. Approved items are usually limited to clothing and/or health and comfort articles.
Command visitations hours: Thursdays 1400-1600
Monday-Friday - 0800-2130 (command visits and meals take precedence)

*Keep in mind that a prisoner must add you to their mail and visitation list in order for us to allow visitation. We have a vetting process for each contact/visit request; this vetting process will include us placing a phone call to you to verify certain personal information and gain your permission to add you to the mail and visitation list. When you receive this call, the Brig staff member will tell you when your visitation will be approved. If you have not received this verification call, the vetting process has not been completed or the prisoner has not requested you to be on their list. Incoming mail is accepted, so if a prisoner has not requested you for visitation, you may write to the prisoner at the address below. We do not pass messages to prisoners.
