Last week, the Placer County Sheriff’s Homeless Liason Deputies Team discovered a large transient encampment near the Foresthill Bridge in Auburn.

The camp was on private property, and all those found camping there were given warnings to vacate the camp, according to a post on the Placer County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page.

In addition to many homeless campers, deputies also found fire pits and a large amount of trash, according to the Facebook page. The Sheriff’s Office posted a video of the camp, which shows a wide array of tents, signs, food and even some electronics at the camp.

While the deputies asked the campers to leave, the Sheriff’s Office said in a comment on the post that the Homeless Liason team always brings along Placer County Probation officers and Health and Human Services workers to provide resources to any homeless people asked to vacate their sites.
