Medford Police and Jackson County Community Justice teamed up to clean illegal camp sites along the Bear Creek Greenway.

Jackson County Community Justice does this work with police jurisdictions across the country.

The police supervise and make sure none of the inmates are in direct danger of illegal campers.

"We get out and we get work done in this community. So instead of laying around in a bunk and watching soap operas, folks in our community justice work crews are going out and doing actual work until they return and re-enter our society," said Eric Guyer, director of Jackson County Community Justice.

Before crews come to clean them up, notifications are placed in the illegal campsites.
