GEORGE F. LEE / SEPT. 11
Honolulu police make the rounds checking on the homeless in the Chinatown area on Bethel Street. Here, using a hand-held device, they take the temperature of a man sitting in a doorway.
Honolulu Police Sgt. Shellie Paiva, right, and officer John Agena walked through the brush in the vicinity behind Waipahu High School in 2010 and came across a homeless encampment.
“We should not be creating a whole separate (police) unit for addressing the homelessness.”
