The Road Home Security Pilot
On Wednesday, July 11, The Road Home implemented new security strategies that are being piloted in the downtown emergency shelter. The Road Home is working to implement new policies and procedures including using metal detectors at check in, managing the flow of people at entrance and exit, and an innovative incident response system that holds clients accountable for unacceptable behaviors, while still providing shelter and services for all those in need. Data from the pilot program will be gathered and reviewed to determine effectiveness of the policies and procedures, which will help shape a security plan that will more effectively curtail substance abuse and help clients feel more secure.
