Crime Reports From The Key Alliance

Crime Reports
The Key Alliance is the website for the Nashville Metro Homelessness Commission. This commission, created by the Mayor of Nashville, is charged with ending chronic homelessness in Nashville Tennessee. They are working towards that goal by creating alternatives to homeless care that are not currently being implemented, but have been proven effective in other cities. The best practice of the Housing First model takes homeless people off the streets and into small apartments that come with an array of supportive services that help the person overcome the problems that caused their homelessness.

The Housing First model has been proven cost effective. Still, few people have stepped up to the plate financially, to get the program up and running. In an attempt to convince the city that Housing First works, the commission has provided the following information.

It is important to note that these arrests are for petty crimes, such as obstructing a sidewalk (because many homeless people keep all their personal possessions with them), or trespassing (sleeping at night in the door way of a business downtown), or disorderly conduct (since it is illegal to arrest someone for panhandling, the police just label it “disorderly conduct” instead), etc.
