The Los Angeles County Jail-Inmate Reception Center is a medium-security detention center located at 450 Bauchet St Los Angeles, 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, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Los Angeles Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Inmate Reception Center (IRC) is the primary intake and release facility of male inmates for the Los Angeles County Jail System, which currently houses approximately 19,000 inmates. IRC is responsible for the maintenance and storage of all inmate records, clothing, property, and funds. IRC is the transfer and pick-up point for inter-facility transfers and for custody transfers and custody releases to the State Prison System, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and other governmental agencies. IRC conducts the initial medical and mental health screening of inmates. IRC is also responsible for the classification of all male inmates and population management of the jail system.
IRC is a processing facility that handles all in-coming bookings/arrests into the Los Angeles County Jail System. All inmates entering the Los Angeles County Jail System are booked, classified for housing, and medically screened/treated at the Inmate Reception Center. All inmates are processed into the county jail system within a 24-hour timeframe. Once processed, they are transferred to their respective housing facilities. After an inmate's case has been adjudicated and/or he/she has served jail time on their sentence, male inmates are released from IRC and female inmates from CRDF.
