REDDING, Calif. – A big cleanup took place in Redding after complaints of illegal camping, dumping, and fires.

The Redding Neighborhood Police Unit (NPU) and the Community Work Program targeted problem areas near dry brush and city waterways. Places that officials focused on included Canyon Creek, Olney Creek, and Hollow Creek.

Police said right now, with the weather changing and the risk of fire danger, it is especially important to keep waterways and storm drains clear of debris.
