Maui is one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. But it’s not only the streets or the beaches that are getting crowded, it’s also the jail. Eileen Chao has more from The Maui News.
Overcrowding continues to plague Maui's only jail. The warden of Maui Community Correctional Center gave media a tour of the facility last week. He said that the Kahului center is more than 150 inmates over capacity. What's worse, there's no space to expand, and efforts to build another jail on Maui appear to have stalled.
