Hualien Detention Center was legally established on July 1st, 1954 to detain 1st trial criminal defendants. The original site was on Jhongshan Rd., Hualien City. From 1965, the Hualien Provisional Court, Taiwan High Court, became a detention center for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trial criminal defendants. The amount of such traffic of defendants has been increasing. The old detention site was not large enough to hold the growing number of defendants. Thus in July of 1967, the Center was moved to No. 1, Rih Sin Gang, Hualien City. Its area is 11,292 square meters. In 1971, Taiwan Hualien Juvenile Detention House was founded. At the beginning, the detention center mixed adults and teenage defendants. In April 1984, the center completed the construction of juvenile detention houses. Since then adult and teenagers defendants have been separated. In September 1978, the Ministry of Justice helped solve the problem of the overcrowding of prisoners in Hualien Prison. Sticking to the principle of using no extra budget or personnel, our centre opened a branch prison. On August 1st, 1992, a detention center was opened. On April 16th, 1997, our center started to accept inmates in the process of appeals in Taitung Local Court and prisoners caught in the gang-crackdown operation and sentenced by the 2nd trail Hualien High Branch Court. On May 22nd, 1998, the center began to implement the ‘Drug Prevention and Control Act’ and was put in charge of observation and detention. Our officials take charge of all the relevant business.
