The problems related to homelessness, the police and the community are a nationwide hot button issue. There have been different approaches across the county from homeless outreach teams to aggressive enforcement of existing laws. But most are just bandaids for a problem that is late and complex.

The Anaheim Police Department is taking a different approach in a collaborative effort with City Net, a non-profit organization that works specifically to address homeless issues. They have formed the Community Care Response Team in a partnership with the city in an attempt to find more effective and lasting solutions to homeless needs in the community.
