The centerpiece of that strategy is the police department’s new Metro Support Bureau Resource Center at 420 W. 200 South, directly in the heart of the city’s homeless population. Police officers at the resource center will be joined by service providers who can help the homeless with the wide array of problems that afflict them. “If we are be...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
