Homeless Encampments At Market St and Danvers

Hi Neighbors,
Over the last couple of weeks the situation at Merritt Park at the intersection of Market/Danvers/Merritt has gotten increasingly worse.  I've seen it myself and have contacted the police, sent photos and read about in on NextDoor.  
Please call the police non-emergency number: 415-553-0123 or the Park Station number: 415-242-3000.  Also, photos sent to the above email addresses would also help.

Mr. Weiss,

We immediately responded up there at 03:00 this morning and it looked bad.  We encourage you to call the non emergency dispatch number to have a police unit respond to clear out the homeless tents and undesirable activities.  We interviewed them and identified them to learn that the been there for a week.   We are arranging homeless outreach for one individual living in a tent, who request HOMEWARD BOUND to return to Oregon.  

We will continue to monitor the area but as you know we can't be there all the time, therefore, we rely on alert neighborhood associations and residents like yourselves to keep us informed.  Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Jeff Sung and Ryan Crockett
