Into the dark: Officers scour tunnels, flood channels to warn homeless about coming rain
By Greg Hardesty-Behind the Badge
From bright sunlight, they descend into darkness.
The four cops ditch their sunglasses for flashlights as they begin trekking through a maze of graffiti-filled flood channels under the streets of La Habra.
They’re looking for homeless people to issue a warning:
A potentially monstrous El Niño-fueled winter is just around the corner, and people living in the tunnels and channels need to move to safer ground – or face the grim possibility of being swept away to their deaths.
The joint effort of the Fullerton and La Habra PDs on Wednesday followed a similar operation last Friday by homeless liaison officers with the FPD to clear several tunnels and channels in their city.
