Police Executive Research Forum
Produced a Report on
Police and Homelessness
The New Police Response to Homelessness:
Outreach and Services, Not Arrests
While the nature of homelessness has not changed very much, there has been a sea change in how law enforcement agencies respond to it. Approximately 250 law enforcement leaders, local government officials, researchers, and other subject matter experts convened in Long Beach, CA on January 24, 2018 for a day-long PERF conference on homelessness. They told us that they have learned that making arrests is not an effective response. Rather, today’s police and sheriffs’ departments see their role as taking leadership and finding innovative solutions, which often involve multi-faceted activities with social service agencies, other government departments, and other partners.
Butte CoC - 2018 Goals
In 2018 the Butte CoC will review Grant Outcomes on all HUD and ESG Grants. These briefs will contain information about how the Grant is being used and the success of each of the Grant Programs
Raising awareness of the HUD requirements, which instruct service provider’s to focus efforts on the 4 main sub-populations: Veterans, Households with Children, Youth, and Chronic Homeless. The Butte CoC will encourage our community to not continue to look at homelessness the same way, but to looking at ways to not only provide the housing, but the social services and case management needed.
CE is an important process through which people experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness can access the crisis response system in a streamlined way, have their strengths and needs quickly assessed, and quickly connect to appropriate, tailored housing and mainstream services within the community or designated region. ….. The most intensive interventions are prioritized for those with the highest needs.
