THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay Police had boots on the ground and were helping with City Workers in cleaning up on Wednesday. Police were assisting in a clean up of garbage in what is spot where homeless people gather in the city.

The clean up of what used to be called a ‘Hobo Jungle’ is one of several areas in the city where homeless people gather and spend their days, and nights. 

Overall for Police, the past twenty four hours have been somewhat quieter than on weekends. There were three weapons offences, only nine quality of life calls, and three assaults.

Thunder Bay Police report that a majority of their calls for service include individuals often intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol.

At issue is a shortage of safe places in Thunder Bay. Shelter House is reporting that the facility is full, and often turning away as many as ten to twelve people every night.
