On 11/11/2022 at approximately 1743 hours, Officer Ramos was dispatched to an Assist in the Kennewick Area. He contacted the reportingparty, who explained he and his son, were homeless and in dire need of assistance. He explained he was recently evicted after being “illegally” evicted from the residence by his property owner. He stated the eviction was over disagreements over who was responsible to fix broken water lines. After being evicted, he also was laid off from his job as a painter. He was left to sleep in a tent in the backyard of his friend’s residence. He advised he had no financial income or family support. He has been working with Labor Ready to get back on his feet and beginearning a steady income. He also advised he would be in contact with the Kennewick Housing Authority when they opened. His son, is 15years old and attends Kamiakin High School. I sent an email to Officer Buroker (KAHS SRO) informing him of this information. Officer Ramos checked both occupants, and both did not have any recent criminal history or drug offenses. It should be noted the weather on11/11/2022 reached the low temperatures of 27 degrees. The male advised he did not use narcotics and did not drink. He stated he would not cause any issues or invite any quest. With this in mind, Officer Ramos used the Community Care Fund to purchase 4 nights at the CloverIsland Inn. Both males were very thankful for the help.
