These sweeps force people out of their ‘homes’ along the river; they end in loss of needed belongings; and they are totally ineffective. In Fort Collins, officials have recognized the ineffectiveness of these approaches and are considering amending their camping ban and anti-car sleeping law to reduce the tickets, “move alongs,” and sweeps because, as Police Services Deputy Chief Jerry Schiager said, he’s not sure that enforcement “was really that helpful” last year. It is time for Denver to stop sweeping people along.
