Moore said he doesn't see homelessness as a law enforcement issue, but rather a public health and safety concern that requires mental health, sanitation, hygiene and housing resources. He said the homeless population sees police officers and firefighters on the streets at 3 a.m., but not anyone uniformed who can provide other services. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
