Intake Release Center & Transportation

The Intake/Release Center (IRC) opened in January of 1988. The IRC is responsible for all processes that involve arrestees being booked and released. There is also a considerable amount of long-term inmate housing at the IRC, as it contains more than 800 inmate beds.

The Transportation Division is an integral part of the Orange County Jail system. This division’s responsibilities include, but are not limited to, transporting inmates 365 days a year, 24 hours a day to other OCSD facilities, court, work sites, hospitals, state prison, out of county jails and mutual aid response during major events. The transportation deputies utilize a wide variety of vehicles that include buses, mobile command centers, vans and cars to accomplish these tasks. They average over six hundred thousand (600,000) miles a year on the roadways.
