LAPD Begins Enforcing Homeless Encampment Violations

Updated: Nov 5, 2022

Senior Lead Officer Jose Ramirez is responsible for emergency and nonemergency

radio calls in Car Area 11A71 (24 hours a day / 365 days a year).

LAPD Senior Lead Officer Jose Ramirez reports that his primary focus is to start

addressing 41.18 Los Angeles Municipal Code violations — the city council-mandated

enforcement prohibiting homeless encampments blocking public sidewalks and homeless

encampments within 500 feet of schools. The enforcement measures will come with

warnings and ample time to clear personal property from sidewalks. People camping on

streets will be provided resources and offered shelter before citations are issued.
