Instead of a protest, dialogue occurs and EPD receives an offer from a private group to help relocate the homeless

"It really didn’t feel like a protest to me," said Captain Steve Watson. "We had some engaging conversations with some compassionate, intelligent and reasonable people and all agreed we need to work together to find a path forward to address homelessness in our community."

"To my knowledge, no one interfered with the City’s clean-up operations which were as usual," said Captain Watson. "We even received and accepted an offer from a gentleman representing a private group to help relocate (in an organized, productive and orderly manner) those in the newly closed northernmost section."
