Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar Detachment Pearl Harbor

Mission Statement

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.


NAVCONBRIG Miramar Det Pearl Harbor serves as the region's confinement and correctional facility for both pre-trial and post-trial prisoners and is available for use by commands of all four of the Armed Services and the Coast Guard.

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 above and in the proper military uniform of the day, for all services.

Command visitation is scheduled on Thursday’s, between the hours of 1400 and 1600. Inquiries regarding visitation may be directed to the Brig Liaisons. Official command visitors will be in uniform, and will present their military ID card. Special command visits outside of the above hours may be authorized on a case by case basis.

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.


Media representatives may visit the brig upon special request, consistent with preserving prisoners' right to privacy while maintaining order and security.  Private housing and other secure areas will not be available except by special request.  All equipment is subject to routine inspection by brig officials for contraband and for security reviews.  Photographs or video which identify prisoners are not permitted, with the exception of internal Navy products.  For more information, contact the Brig Public Affairs Officer at:  808-472-0020.


Personal interviews and telephonic communications between prisoners (pre-trial or post-trial) and media representatives are not authorized, unless a determination is made that such interview serves a legitimate public interest, or is in the best interest of the military, per Department of the Defense (DoD) and Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) policy.  For more information or to submit a request for determination contact the Navy Personnel Command Communications Office at (901) 874-3507.
