Police continue to be the default response to #homelessness in most communities. Many are asking if a police response if appropriate, or should they “stay in their lane”?
An effective homeless or panhandling policy should move away from arresting away the problem (a last resort as this is a good way to get sued) to solving the problem.
So where do you start? Contact me to book my very popular presentation (either on-site or remotely) “The Top 10 Reasons to Start a Police Homeless Outreach Team (and How)”.
I have made this presentation at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference and others around the country. I’ll provide tools you can use and highlight real-world examples to save your agency time and money while reducing calls for service and exposure to litigation.
