Theo Lacy was first opened in 1960, making it the oldest jail in Orange County. Anyone arrested in Orange County will be taken to the Intake Release Center (“IRC”) where they are booked. From there, men are sometimes transferred to the Theo Lacy Jail Facility. Male inmates may end up at Theo Lacy because they are considered a high-risk offender, or have serious mental or medical health issues, or were arrested in close proximity.
