Los Angeles – "The Los Angeles Police Commission and the Los Angeles Police Department are
fully committed to working with our City, County, and non-profit partners to end homelessness in Los Angeles. This incredibly difficult work depends on a level of trust with our homeless residents that is built over hours of patient conversation and contact. It’s not easy work, and we are all grateful that the Mayor and Department have made addressing homelessness a priority. Our officers are doing extraordinary work turning hopelessness into hope and bringing the possibility of change to our streets." ~ Matt Johnson, President, Los Angeles Police Commission.
