Interview - Homelessness in Eugene and 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Ruling - 09/07/18

Please find a link for a general interview regarding homelessness in the wake of a 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that cities can’t prosecute people for sleeping on the streets if they have nowhere else to go, as it amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, which is unconstitutional.

Eugene Police Captain Sam Kamkar provided an interview about the Eugene Police Department’s practices and procedures relating to illegal camping complaints, EPD’s proactive approaching in training their officers about the state of homelessness in America, and EPD’s community policing philosophy.
