ABSTRACT

Stretched Too Thin: The Impact of Homelessness on U.S. Law Enforcement   [open pdf - 9MB]

From the thesis Abstract: "As homelessness in the United States continues to impact local communities, law enforcement organizations situated at the forefront of the crisis are struggling to respond effectively. This thesis presents the findings of a nationwide survey of U.S. law enforcement personnel, which reveals that homelessness has a drastic effect on law enforcement organizations, and their attempts to respond appropriately cause many agencies to divert invaluable resources away from traditional law enforcement and homeland security efforts. The thesis delivers several recommendations and concludes that law enforcement leaders today must reconsider their role and acknowledge that other entities--nongovernmental, governmental, or a combination thereof--may be better suited to lead the effort to combat homelessness."
