Hollywood Hills Sweep Rousts 25 Homeless People -

Jay, a homeless man sleeping near a Hollywood freeway onramp, awoke to the voices of police Friday morning.

Los Angeles Police Department officers Julie Nony and Paula Davidson had rooted out an encampment of nine transients -- including Jay -- who were sleeping along the Highland Avenue onramp to Highway 101.

Nony and Davidson were part of a team of roughly two dozen officers and sheriff's deputies who fanned out across Hollywood, trudging through wild-land hills and along freeway embankments looking for homeless people. The transients were told to move out but also were offered social services.
