If someone is blocking your path, behaving aggressively, or indicating that they may hurt themselves or someone else, please call 911. Safety is the City’s top priority, and everyone deserves to feel safe and supported here. Do remember, however, that experiencing homelessness in not a crime. And you cannot be arrested for panhandling. It is considered free speech and is protected as a constitutional right.
If someone is on your property uninvited –whether it is your business or home –please call 911. To reduce unwanted behavior, please lock your dumpsters and provide bright lighting outside. You can also sign a Trespass Letter of Consent that gives police officers permission to enforce trespassing laws on your behalf, without contacting you first.
If you see a tent or group of tents in a public park or on private land, please call 425-407-3999, so we can alert our Outreach Team. Please note that our team does their best to connect campers to resources, shelter, and services. This sometimes takes a day or two, so you may see the tent for a little while after you call.
If someone is harassing, threatening, or bullying you, please call 911. Safety is the City’s first priority, and everyone deserves to feel safe and supported here.
