South San Francisco, CA July 26, 2021 by SSFPD
Several months ago, SSFPD Downtown Bike Patrol [Officer Tenorio and Officer Peradotto] contacted 70 year old Bruce Evans [SSF Transient] who was sleeping outside of an abandoned building on the 200 block of Miller Avenue. Downtown Bike Patrol offered Bruce housing resources, but Bruce never proceeded with the process. Downtown Bike Patrol continued to follow up with situation after receiving word Bruce’s health was deteriorating due to his living conditions.
Saturday, Downtown Bike Patrol made contact with Bruce and did not leave the scene until he received shelter. Downtown Bike Patrol was adamant in contacting LifeMoves while still on scene. LifeMoves responded to the scene shortly after and conducted a housing assessment. Bruce qualified and was immediately transported to a shelter in the county after being homeless for 20 years.
