For years now, the county has been proposing to replace the facility. In June 2018 county supervisors finally approved $2.2 billion to build a replacement with the notable amendment that the new facility would be designed with a focus on mental health and rehabilitation. As reported by The Los Angeles Times at the time, 70 percent of the county jail’s population were physically or mentally ill.
