In 2021, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department established a Behavioral Health Bureau focused on the mental health and well-being of those under our care and custody. In partnership with the Orange County Health Care Agency and other healthcare resources, the Sheriff’s Department is committed to addressing inmate behavioral health crises. Mental Health Hotline numbers have been established to support current inmates housed at the Intake Release Center, Theo Lacy Facility, and Central Men’s and Women’s jails.
