The Century Regional Detention Center is a detention center located at 11705 S Alameda St Lynwood, CA which is operated locally by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Los Angeles County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Lynwood Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for California here.

Adults Bonding with Children: the ABC Program - The Adults Bonding with Children (ABC) program allows inmates to build and maintain a parent relationship during their time in jail. This program not only is beneficial to the female inmate, but gives the children an opportunity to share a connection with his or her mother.
Adult Basic Education - This series of courses is offered to students preparing for the formal GED preparation course. It features a systematic “building block” approach to development of improved reading, writing, and math skills.
GED Completion - For inmate students who have not yet achieved a high school diploma, this program offers an alternative diploma in the form of a state-approved equivalency series in the areas of language arts (reading, writing, and comprehension skills), mathematics, science, and social studies
Computer Operations - Covers the basics of Microsoft Office 2010 suite operations, Word, PowerPoint, Access, and Excel.
Culinary Arts - Active training in food services, baking, cooking and the full spectrum of food preparation.
Sewing Class - Provides training in basic sewing techniques. Participating inmates learn to operate sewing machinery in the creation of dolls—which are donated to inner-city schools across the county—and various articles of clothing.
Drug and Alcohol Abuse Courses - These include several programs designed according to the Twelve-Step model, such as Celebrate Recovery, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and others.
IMPACT Drug Treatment Program - The inmates who are involved in the IMPACT Program are selected by designated Drug Courts within the Municipal and Superior courts of Los Angeles County. Inmates must have approval by an authorized Drug Court, the contact service providers (IMPACT Center) and the Sheriff’s Department, to participate in a twelve-step curriculum partially based upon the tenets of the Narcotics Anonymous program. When an inmate completes the program, the IMPACT staff makes a recommendation to the court for follow-up monitoring, which can last up to eighteen months. The monitoring may include drug testing, non-custodial supervision, employment authorization, and continued participation in the twelve-step program.
