The Fullerton Police Department's Homeless Liaison Officer (HLO) Unit is comprised of multiple officers dedicated to assisting the homeless population in Fullerton. Utilizing partnerships with various organizations, the City Net, and Orange County Mental Health, the HLO Unit's mission is to provide homeless individuals with opportunities to get off the streets and into permanent housing. HLO's conduct Homeless Outreach each week in partnership with these organizations, and work every day to address the needs of the community.
While every police officer is trained in how to assist the homeless population, the HLO Unit has direct contact with Orange County Social Services and relationships with numerous support services that are critical to helping the homeless. They also have a Clinician from Orange County Mental Health with them, in their car police car, 4 days a week to help not only the homeless population in but also those suffering from mental health issues as well.
