Homelessness is an all-too-prevalent sad fact of modern urban life.

Petersfield experiences the consequences of this as much as or perhaps even more than any other area of the city, being host to major shelters that provide valuable services to ease the plight of the homeless. Residents need open and accessible mechanisms for interacting with those who support the homeless, in order to be able to minimize any disruptions or problems that might otherwise arise.

We also appreciate the support of the local constabulary, who are aware of troublespots, and work to keep the area safe for all.
