ESPD and LA County Dept of Mental Health Collaborate to Address Homelessness

Post Date:02/12/2020 9:47 AM

METHomelessness is an issue that impacts the City of El Segundo and other cities across the nation. ESPD has two Community Lead Officers that are dedicated to assisting the homeless in the City. Community Lead Officers Marco Lemus and Dominick Fix-Gonzalez focus much of their efforts on proactively contacting homeless individuals to develop a positive relationship and offer regional resources to assist those willing to accept them. At least once a week, a mental health clinician from the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health rides with our officers on patrol. The officer and clinician team up and respond to calls involving the homeless and/or anyone possibly suffering from a mental condition. If you are aware of an individual you believe needs homeless assistance call ESPD at our non-emergency phone number: 310-524-2760 or you can submit information online Los Angeles County Homeless Outreach Portal (LAHOP).
