On Tuesday, November 7, the Police Department hosted its annual Anchor-Out Outreach Event in Dunphy Park for Sausalito’s anchor-out and homeless communities. Approximately forty people attended the event and received free medical care, clothing, and supplies. The relaxed atmosphere of the event also fostered open communication between officers and attendees.
Flu shots and health exams were provided by nursing students from the University of California, San Francisco. Marin Health and Human Services offered clothing, toiletries, and emergency supplies. The Marin Humane Society supplied dog leashes, pet food, and clothing for animals of all sorts. To top off the event, attendees were served a taco lunch donated by Sean Saylor of Saylor’s Restaurant.
