How many of those calls involved homeless people? Maybe the city/county Fed Govt should put done money into prevention programs. Why should the police force have to deal with do much of this problem downtown. Drugs are costing this county way to much.

To anybody that may have concern... How many people have noticed a Jeep parked in front of the 7-eleven that doesn't seem to move. I was at the store one day and witnessed the guy in the back seat smoking his dope with his poor dog looking like he was just waiting for someone to save him. This guy has been there for over a year, and why the owners of the Laundry mat don't do something about it. I know the owners and they are nice people,but this guy is taking parking space for the customers. The next time I witness him smoking dope w/ his dog the back seat, I'm going to surely going call the Animal Services. It's time to move on dude, they give all the other homeless tickets for there motohomes,and vehiclea, why isn't nothing being done. Its like a blind eye, no one cares or what. I won't be going to this 7-Eleven ..........

He's still there, why aren't the S.C.P.D. telling this guy to move on. He's claiming his dad own's the 7-Eleven on Mission, but still, go do your dope some where else. Out of Sight, Out of Mind....
