Being homeless is not a crime. When crimes (theft, assault, malicious mischief, trespassing, drug possession, burglary, possession of stolen property, disorderly conduct, unlawful display of a weapon, bomb incident) occur in and around the Alabama Street camp, Longview Police Department has been arresting the suspects involved in those crimes. Also, the staffing needs of the police department are not singularly tied to the people living at the Alabama Street camp. The patrol staffing level for the police department has remained the same since 1980 – it is 1 supervisor and 4 patrol officers. Since 1980 we have seen a 40% increase in police calls for service and 0% increase in patrol staffing levels. In addition, we are not able to book every suspect into jail. Jail booking restrictions limit our ability to book on some offenses.
