Los Angeles County Sheriff Custody Operations

Los Angeles County is planning a proposed new minimum security facility for women inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center. Currently, women inmates are housed only at the Century Regional Detention Facility.

Medical Services Bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is the largest correctional medical service
provider in the world.

North County Correctional Facility is also known as "SuperMax."

The facilities of the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic were once known as Wayside Honor Rancho and was established as a minimum security facility in 1938 where inmates worked in a farm setting. The farm setting for the jail closed down in 1992.

Mira Loma Detention Facility is contracted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to house non-U.S. citizens detained for violations of U.S. immigration laws. The facility operates as a regular county jail except that persons housed there are identified as immigration detainees. These detainees are citizens of any one of more than sixty different countries. They remain in detention at the facility until their case is decided through Immigration Courts. ICE personnel assigned to Mira Loma handle all detainee transport, releasing, tracking and deporting. Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputies and Custody Assistants only handle the Executive Office of Immigration Review courtrooms at the facility.
