Mission Statement

Custody Services Division’s primary mission is to discharge its legal duties and responsibilities promptly and efficiently while ensuring that individuals are provided professional and dignified treatment.

Custody Services Division serves as an integral support element.  The Los Angeles Police Department is under no statutory obligation to provide or maintain its own jail system but does so because of the vital support and assistance it renders both to the community and to the various law enforcement agencies it services. The Commanding Officer of Custody Services Division is Orlando Chandler.

Custody Services Division consists of ten jails located throughout the City of Los Angeles. The three larger scale jails are Metropolitan Detention Center, 77th Street Regional Jail, and Valley Regional Jail, and the other seven small scale area jails include, Devonshire (TEMPORARILY CLOSED), Foothill (TEMPORARILY CLOSED), Harbor, Hollywood, Pacific, Southwest (TEMPORARILY CLOSED) and Wilshire (TEMPORARILY CLOSED)
