RPD Begins Project To Cleanup Homeless Camps Below Mercy Hospital

Redding Police have begun a major cleanup of homeless camps in the canyon below Mercy Medical Center. Illegal campers along Linden Avenue had been put on notice about the eviction prior to the start of the project Wednesday. Tons of material has already been moved out and many more tons will follow. Redding Police Officers are trying to get as many people as possible into transitional housing hosted by private non-profits such as “No Boundaries”, which is now operating in several former motels.
