Homelessness Response Metrics


The Sacramento Police Department understands that compassionate policing, wrap around services, and building long term partnerships are necessary in addressing the needs of those experiencing homelessness.  As such, the Sacramento Police Department formed our IMPACT team. 

The IMPACT team provides outreach and engagement services throughout the City of Sacramento.  They are the city’s initial point of contact with both chronic homeless and inebriates living on the streets.  The team engages chronic homeless persons and, for those who are willing, get them in contact with service providers who can provide housing and other services.  The teams work together to assess the homeless person’s problems, and identify how to help them from a range of solutions.  Whether their homelessness had been caused by loss of income, psychological problems, substance abuse, lack of job training, or other problems, multiple options are available to assist each person.  


*In July of 2020, the City of Sacramento created the Department of Community Response (DCR) to establish an alternative response model for 911 calls that do not require a police officer response. For more information on the DCR visit Department of Community Response Homeless Coordination
