With an increase of 143% of calls to the police on homeless related issues this year, there is definitely an issue which needs to be addressed. The City Council has supported funding of a street advocate by the name of Melissa Miraglia. Ms. Miraglia will be reporting to the Community Impact Unit at the Police Department- overseen by Harry Rocheville. This is only a 19 hour a week position. I am trying to arrange a meeting with Ms. Miraglia, when I do I will provide a follow-up on her plan of action with contact information. If you have anything specific, please do not hesitate to contact me via email email@example.com or phone 978-744-3182.
