Description Hakea Prison is a minimum to maximum security prison for males located in Canning Vale, Western Australia. The facility is managed by the Department of Corrective Services on behalf of the Government of Western Australia.The prison officially opened in June 1982 as Canning Vale Prison, managing 248 prisoners. From September 1991, Canning Vale Prison operated as a maximum-security prison until, in 2000, it merged with the CW Campbell Remand Centre and became Hakea Prison. Hakea Prison manages prisoners in custody to appear in court (on remand) and those who have just been sentenced. Most newly sentenced prisoners are assessed at Hakea Prison before being placed at other Western Australian prisons. To manage the stress that can be felt by new arrivals, Hakea Prison has specialist management units for prisoners.In 2016, Units 11 and 12 of the Hakea facility were converted into the separate Melaleuca Remand and Reintegration Facility for women.
