The Kulani Correctional Facility (KCF) is a 160-bed minimum-security prison that incorporates vocational training and specialized programming for male inmates nearing the end of their sentence. Situated on 20 acres, it opened in 1946 as a work camp.

Kulani is the primary location for the department's sex offender treatment program. Past programs at KCF initially focused on assigning inmates agricultural work, specifically cultivating fruits and vegetables. Planting and cutting koa forests were also at one time a large part of the facility's programs.

Over the years, Kulani's programs have evolved with the changing technological needs and the job market. Today's worklines stress mechanical repair and maintenance, construction, heavy equipment operation and computer work.
