The City Council voted on December 22, 2020, to direct the City Attorney's Office to file an amicus brief in support of Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes' appeal to a court order by Orange County Superior Court Judge Peter Wilson mandating the release of 1,858 inmates from the Orange County jail. 

In a letter of support addressed to Sheriff Barnes', Mayor Pezold stated that "We are extremely concerned that the mandate to release nearly 2,000 currently incarcerated inmates will pose a serious threat to Orange County residents, businesses and public safety employees...Releasing violent offenders and others who pose significant threats to public safety will do little to protect our communities."
