Here are some quotes from the article that should set the tone for our outreach to the Police to find better ways to engage the homeless in our community! It can be done as witnessed in this story!
There are proper ways to engage your local Police in ending homelessness in a day-to-day effort!
This may well be a model to look at, but it takes concerned Police motivated by their leadership to make a difference here! Sometimes it may well be a personal motivation at the street level to deal with an individuals needs at the point when you’re right there with them too as well as an organized “intervention” approach!
That’s true Point-in-Time action done all year long & a natural for the once-a-year PIT Count process too!
