'Excrement Patrol': How San Francisco Struggles with a growing number of homeless people
While California is struggling with a growing number of homeless people, human waste and rubbish-strewn streets, the attractiveness of tourism in San Francisco is declining.
Although the state is investing billions of dollars, the homeless crisis is intensifying in Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, and San Francisco.
Over the past year, the number of homeless people in Los Angeles County has grown by 12 percent, and the largest number of homeless people in the country live in this area.

San Francisco's streets are getting worse. Last year, the city received 27 000 requests for the removal of human waste. However, city officials are making efforts to clean the streets.
Today, about 7500 people live in San Francisco. Rich areas of the city steel dangerous due to the use of drugs in the open air, tens of thousands of thrown needles and, unfortunately, human feces.
To prevent the city from sinking into human waste, San Francisco politicians tried to solve the problem by forming the Poop Patrol, which should comb the streets of the city to cleanse its feces.
If you believe the map published Forbesthen excrement can be found in almost the entire city.
Since 2011, at least 118 352 cases of human feces have been reported on city streets.

118 city blocks were affected. However, 72% of all cases since 2008 have been reported in only ten: 1. Tenderloin (30,863); 2. South of Market (23,599); 3. Mission (19,150); 4. Civic Center (6,232); 5. Mission Dolores (4,096); 6. Lower Nob Hill (3,654); 7. Potrero Hill (2,489); 8. Showplace Square (2,022); 9. North Beach (1,826); and 10. Financial District (1,810).
Last year, city officials underestimated the report of the growing crisis problem across California — especially in Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco, which is leading the country to homelessness.
In San Francisco, an additional 25 public bathroom has been set up for $ 200 000 each to help.
Recall that in three districts of San Francisco, California, for two years the number of homeless increased by tens of percent, including 17% in San Francisco and 43% in the county, which includes Auckland. This is evidenced by the data of the federal authorities.
Due to the worsening homelessness crisis, one of the small business owners requested complaining directly to State Governor Gavin Newsom on his Twitter video.
Some residents digging in the trash of their billionaire neighbors and selling the “treasures” they found to survive. All that they find, they sell, earning from $ 30 to $ 40 per day. The average income from such activities is about $ 300 per week.
