The growing numbers of makeshift camps have caught attention from the public and city officials. This encampment stretches over 6 miles from the Santa Ana River Trail to Ball Road and has over 500 campers on the county property. On January 22, 2018, the OC Sheriffs department started the eviction process of the homeless encampment. “We're not going to come in with an Army of Deputies and force everybody off in 24 hours,” Said Undersheriff, Don Barnes to the press. Orange County is experience an increasing amount of poverty and faces huge challenges preventing and help homelessness in the city.
