Management Alert on Issues Requiring Immediate Action at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange, California (OIG-17-43-MA)

Executive Summary

A recent unannounced inspection of the Theo Lacy Facility, an ICE detention facility in Orange, California, raised serious concerns, some that pose health risks and others that violate ICE’s 2008 Performance-Based National Detention Standards and result in potentially unsafe conditions at the facility.  Overall, we had concerns about food handling, confinement conditions, and services.  We made three recommendations to ensure compliance with ICE detention standards and strengthen ICE’s oversight of TLF.
