Homeless Outreach

Homeless individuals and camps may be found in several areas within the Township. In cooperation with several County agencies, we reach-out to homeless people assisting them with food, medical needs, shelter and safety. During cold months, we routinely visit all known locations and provide assistance to shelters and removal to psychiatric facilities if a person is placing themselves in life threatening conditions. It is not unusual to find our officers buying lunch or coffee for a homeless person while discussing resources and programs that can help them.
