Emergency calls piling up at L.A.’s tiny home villages

Los Angeles now has 11 tiny home villages built by the city and largely operated with government funds.

Chandler Blvd. was the first, opening in 2021. But as these communities have expanded, so has something else: the number of emergency calls.

KTLA obtained police, fire and paramedic records which paint a picture of the care still needed by the unhoused when they are taken off the streets. Among them are calls for suspected assault, threats, weapons, suicides and overdoses.
