  • MBI was asked to provide video documentation of the existing conditions and subsequent clearing of a large homeless encampment along the Santa Ana Riverbed, between Ball Road and Interstate 5 in Anaheim, Calif.
  • Being a high-profile, sensitive issue, MBI worked alongside OC Public Works, OC Parks, Orange County Public Health Services, Orange County legal staff, and the Orange County Sheriff’s Dept., Anaheim Police Dept., and Orange Police Dept.
  • Documented the interaction of U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter with homeless population along the riverbed
  • The project is being observed by other agencies as a model for implementation of similar programs to deal with the issue of homelessness in their cities
