We (LAPD) are continually checking for encampments where people could possibly be setting up cooking or warming fires.

“Please reach out to me directly if there is a question or concern. I tend to get emails from residents about comments or alleged activity happening through social media platforms that are not occurring or a little exaggerated. The rumor mill can create fear and panic with information not being vetted or fact checked.”
