Addressing homelessness requires collaboration among a broad range community partners. Law enforcement can play a proactive role and effectively gear their efforts toward solutions to homelessness. The Sarasota community utilizes their law enforcement partners to provide street outreach through Homeless Outreach Teams (HOT) combined with case management services. Attendees will learn the importance of street outreach in moving homeless individuals toward permanent housing and services. The Sarasota HOT approach is widely recognized as one of the best strategies to address street homelessness, focusing on engagement and education prior to enforcement. Understanding this approach, as well as the legal landscape around local ordinances affecting those who are homeless, will benefit every community.
